Abstract

Static and dynamic energy release rates were utilised to study energy losses away from the crack tip in three different fracture specimens during a dynamic fracture event. The method of analysis utilizes an energy balance in the system. The results show that a substantial amount of energy is lost away from the crack tip. Moreover the energy loss is found to be dependent on the specimen geometry and material. © 1983.
