Consistency checks, including short and deep crack limiting relations, are applied to the solutions obtained in Part 1. An error measure is introduced to quantify the consistency check. The accuracy of the solutions of Part 1 is discussed in light of these consistency checks and comparison is made with previous solutions. Consistency checks appear useful in ascertaining the accuracy of existing fully plastic crack solutions and of proposed new solutions.
