Description

The aim of this paper is to experimentally investigate face/core fracture toughness and disbond propogation in a honeycomb core sandwich using two contemporary test methods - single cantilever beam (SCB) and double cantilever beam uneven bending moments (DCB-UBM). These test methods will be performed in mode-I conditions to allow comparison.
