A new cleavage fracture framework (CFF) is developed, within which each model finds a rational location, allowing one to classify models and to know what each model is implicitly assuming or neglecting. This CFF is demonstrated to be a powerful tool to develop advanced models for ferritic steels, closer to physical phenomena. An example of the application of this framework is developed and results are discussed.
