The accuracy of the approximate J -estimation procedure evaluated along rectangular contours in the elastic and the HRR crack tip fields was assessed. The path independency of the approximate J ’s in the presence of LEFM and elastic-plastic stress fields was demonstrated experimentally in 7075-T6, 2024-0 and 5052–H32 SEN specimens with small stable crack growth of 1 to 2 mm. HRR field does not exist in a ductile material with relatively large strain-hardening exponent, i.e., N = 15. The approximate J and the COD resistance curves for 2024-0 and 5052-H32 specimens for small crack extension was established. These curves showed little sensitivity to the notch tip acuity due to large plastic yielding.
