A dynamic analysis of unstable crack propagation and arrest in the DCB test specimen

  • M. F. Kanninen
Article

Abstract

A simple analytical model is developed to accompany experimental work on rapid crack propagation and arrest in the DCB test specimen. The present work extends the beam-on-elastic foundation model used previously by taking account of shear deformation and of both translational and rotary inertia. Crack speeds predicted with the model are found to be in good agreement with the constant-speed behavior observed experimentally. It is demonstrated that kinetic energy makes an important contribution to maintaining unstable crack propagation and to crack arrest.
