(5) The following requirements are applied in lieu


of those of UG-84(h). The fracture toughness of the
welds and heat affected zone of the procedure qualifica-
tion test plates shall be determined by testing in accord-
ance with ASTM E 813 and shall demonstrate at 452F
an equivalent fracture toughness Kc(J) of at least
120 ksi- in. determined from the test data using the
expression Kc(J) p (EJIc)1/2. The specimens shall meet
the orientation and location requirements of UG-84(g)(1)
and UG-84(g)(2). Welding procedures for use only with
base material less than 0.099 in. thickness are exempt
from these fracture toughness testing requirements.
