In this paper, a new loading device for general mixed mode I/II/III fracture tests is designed and recommended. Finite element analyses are conducted on the proposed apparatus to evaluate the fracture parameters of the tested samples under various mixed mode loading conditions. The numerical results revealed that the designed loading fixture can generate wide varieties of mode mixities from pure tensile mode to pure in-plane and out-of-plane shear modes. The accuracy of the proposed fixture is evaluated by conducting a wide range of fracture tests on compact tension shear (CTS) specimens made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). The experimental results are then compared with the theoretical predictions obtained by the Richard criterion.

Abstract

In this paper, a new loading device for general mixed mode I/II/III fracture tests is designed and recommended. Finite element analyses are conducted on the proposed apparatus to evaluate the fracture parameters of the tested samples under various mixed mode loading conditions. The numerical results revealed that the designed loading fixture can generate wide varieties of mode mixities from pure tensile mode to pure in-plane and out-of-plane shear modes. The accuracy of the proposed fixture is evaluated by conducting a wide range of fracture tests on compact tension shear (CTS) specimens made of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). The experimental results are then compared with the theoretical predictions obtained by the Richard criterion. A good consistency is observed between the experimental results and theoretical predictions. © 2019 Wiley Publishing Ltd.
