Evaluation of Static and Dynamic Stress Intensity Factors under Pure Mode I and Mixed Mode I/II Fracture
The focus of this work is to investigate pre-cracked plate element fracture under mixed mode I/II loading. In order to look into element with inclined initial crack, the test procedure was also performed due to pure opening fracture (I mode) and in-plane shear mode (II mode). For this purpose, static and dynamic tests were performed with original testing device, in which the specimen was fixed in so called “Arcan disc”. The results showed fracture characteristics dependence under initial crack orientation angle, i.e. due opening mode, in-plane shear mode and mixed mode I/II fracture.
