Abstract

An experimental study is conducted to show the application of strain gages in studies of dynamic fracture. In particular, strain gages have been used to evaluate the dynamic stress intensity factors in different specimen geometries in a variety of materials. A direct comparison of the results obtained from strain gages is made with those obtained using dynamic photoelasticity. A detailed evaluation of the effect of the position and orientation of the strain gage on the determination of the fracture parameters is also presented. © 1995.
