Abstract:After a specimen geometry that ensures straight crack growth was found for the experiment described above, research on crack turning was continued. As a hot glass plate is dipped into cool water, a pre-crack may grow along many different paths depending upon the testing parameters. In silicon the crack favors the cleavage planes. A cohesive-element model modified for thermally-driven cracks reproduced many of the experimental crack morphologies.
