Abstract
A modified edge notched flexural (MENF) specimen in a three point loading configuration is proposed for testing crack initiation toughness of bimaterial interfaces. An interface with a relatively large stiffness mismatch between two dissimilar materials, Aluminum-PMMA, is considered. The deformations near interface cracks are mapped in real time using a full-field optical method called Coherent Gradient Sensing (CGS). The homogeneous counterparts of MENF specimens have produced a fairly wide range of mode-mixities in our previous studies. This paper presents details regarding the extension of the model to bimaterial interface crack tip measurements and fracture toughness testing. The CGS measurements are used to extract both crack tip stress intensity factors as well as mode mixities using plane elastostatic interface crack tip fields. The results are compared with the ones from a beam model. The load data corresponding to crack initiation is used for evaluating fracture toughness of the interface as a function of mode mixity.
