This study builds upon the J-Q approach to characterize constraint effects on cleavage fracture behavior of cracked structural components. Discussions emphasize features of current two-parameter fracture methodologies which extend the limits of applicability of single parameter fracture approaches when LSY effects prevail. Inclusion of the second parameter (Q) in failure assessment procedures leads to the construction of experimentally derived fracture toughness loci, rather than conventional, single-valued definitions of toughness. The plan of the article is as follows. First, the notion of crack tip constraint and its connection with SSY reference fields is introduced. This is followed by a brief description of the J-Q theory to define the hydrostatic parameter Q. The paper then addresses representative numerical solutions which provide J-Q trajectories for common fracture specimens under bend and tensile loading, including deep and shallow crack SE(B) and SE(T) specimens. These analyses, when taken together with previous works, provide a fairly extensive body of results against which the robustness of the J-Q methodology can be weighed. (AU)
