The fracture toughness of melt-powder-melt-growth(MPMG)-processed YBaCuO samples was measured and the beneficial effect of the dispersed 211 particles in the 123 superconducting phase on toughening the material was confirmed. Preferred fracture planes were (100), (010) and (001) planes, and the fracture toughness of the (001) plane was lower than that of the (100) and (010) planes.
