Brittle fracture behavior of a light cure composite resin was studied using a high speed exten. someter. The single edge notched tensile specimens were fractured with a special loading jig so that it could split and fly away after the fracture. The load and displacement diagram, i.e. the external work applied to the specimen was partitioned into three parts: the elastic energy left in the fractured specimen, the nonelastic energy due to viscuplastic deformation and the fracture energy for creating new surfaces. These energies were then determined and correlated with the fracture load. Energy release rates were also evaluated, and the results were discussed.
