Abstract

The modified Tilted Sandwich Debond (TSD) specimen provides an improved methodology for characterization of the face/core fracture resistance. An experimental mixed mode characterization of the fracture toughness spanning a large range of phase angles has been achieved by specific steel bar reinforcements and testing over a range tilt angles. Different material configurations have been tested and compared in terms of both fracture resistance and crack path.
