Description: | In the Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) test, a measure of mode I fracture energy can be obtained using the experimental compliance method. It is assumed that the compliance (C=δ/P) is related to the crack length (a) by the equation C=ka^{n}, where k and n are constants. A plot of log(c) vs log(a) gives a linear graph with the gradient equal to n.TeX format: G |
