Abstract

Dynamic crack propagation in PMMA was studied using the method of caustics in combination with a Cranz-Schardin type high-speed camera. Three different types of specimen geometries were employed to achieve the crack acceleration, deceleration and re-acceleration process in one fracture event. Dynamic stress intensity factor KID and the crack velocity were evaluated in the course of crack propagation to obtain the relationship between KID and the velocity The effect of crack acceleration and deceleration on the K ID -velocity relations was examined.
