Effect of Crack Tip Constraint on the Fracture Resistance Curve in CT Specimen with Same Thickness Jo, Yeon-Je; Jang, Yun-Seok; Seok, Chang-Seong; Kim, Yeong-Jin;
Fracture resistance(J-R) curves, which are used for elastic-plastic fracture mechanics analyses, are known to be dependent on the specimen geometry. The objective of this paper is to investigate the effect of crack tip constraint an the J-R curves in CT specimens. Fracture toughness tests on CT specimens with varying planform size were performed and test results showed that the J-R curves were increased with an increase in the planform size. Finite element analysis were also performed and the numerical results showed that this experimental phenomenon was probably due to the relaxation of crack tip constraint resulting from the stress triaxiality.
