Mode I Fracture Testing of Adhesively Bonded Joints 1999-01-1253

Several standard methods exist for testing composites, metals and plastics in Mode I fracture. However, these standard test methods have limitations that disqualify them as candidates for testing certain automotive materials. In order to conduct successful fracture toughness tests with these automotive materials, a modified double cantilever beam testing geometry and associated new procedure have been developed. Both the test procedure and the data analysis have been fully documented in a draft standard. Representative SRIM composite, e-coat steel and epoxy were selected to develop and validate the testing procedure.
