An experimental apparatus utilizing double cantilever beam specimens loaded with uneven bending moments was developed to study the mixed-mode fatigue crack growth in composites. The approach is suitable when large-scale bridging of cracks is present. To illustrate the testing method, cyclic growth of delaminations in a typical fibre-reinforced poly...
A test configuration for characterizing stable cyclic crack growth in fibre reinforced composites displaying large-scale bridging under mixed mode fracture has been proposed and sample results of tests conducted on a glass reinforced polymer in pure mode I have been presented. These show that shielding of the crack tip due to fibre bridging has sig...
