Title: Fracture characterization of wood under Mode I loading using the SEN-TPB Test
Issue Date: 2014-02-06
Abstract: Mode I fracture characterization was induced in wood (Picea abies L.) using the single-edge-notched beamloaded in three-point-bending. A developed data reduction scheme based on the equivalent linear elasticfracture mechanics was used to evaluate the Resistance-curve instead of classical methods. The method isfound on beam theory and crack equivalent concept taking into account the triangular stress relief regionthat develops in the crack vicinity. The method dispenses crack length monitoring in the course of theloading process, providing a complete Resistance-curve which is essential for a clear identification of thefracture energy. The validation of the procedure has been performed numerically using a bilinear cohesivedamage model, thus allowing the simulation of both damage initiation and growth. The numerical modelalso provided the critical specimen dimensions that permit the attainment of accurate evaluation of thefracture toughness in wood.
