Abstract
Two specimens along different directions are cut from directional Plexiglas plate of biaxial tension. Digital image correlation method in frequency domain is applied to measure elastic modulus. Through analysing elastic modulus along different directions, directional Plexiglas is anisotropic material. Because of the anisotropic mechanical behaviors in directional Plexiglas, the values of fracture toughness are related to the propagation directions of cracks. The specimen is very small, so there is not enough space to put the extensometer. Digital image correlation method in frequency domain which substitutes the extensometer is applied to test crack opening displacement V. In the paper fracture toughness values are tested along two directions. Experiment results indicate that the cracks of different propagation directions have different fracture mechanics properties.
