Title: Mode I fracture characterization of wood using the SEN-TPB test
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: The single-edge-notched beam loaded in three-point-bending has been numerically analyzed to validate its adequacy tocharacterize wood fracture under pure mode I loading. This specimen geometry has been chosen since it is particularlyuseful to perform tests in those fracture systems impossible to be tested with the double cantilever beam (DCB). Thestudy revealed several aspects avoiding the direct measurement of fracture toughness in wood due to confinement of thefracture process zone (FPZ) under loading. This has been confirmed analyzing stress profiles of different specimensizes, differently affected by compression due to bending.
