Title:Combined mode crack extension in adhesive joints
Author(s):Trantina, G. G.
Subject(s):Crack Extension
Adhesive Joints
Abstract:This study investigates crack extension in an adhesive system under combined mode loading. A finite element stress analysis for a slant edge-cracked plate furnishes the opening and shear mode stress intensity factors, KI and KII, over a wide range of slant angles and crack lengths. By varying the angle betwen the adhesive layer and the load line in a SEN specimen, combined mode crack extension is observed and the combined mode fracture toughness values are then determined. The effect of the location of the crack tip (center of bond or interface) is also discussed.
