Experimental Crack Front Investigation of Unpoled Soft Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) Using the Single Edge V-Notched Beam (SEVNB) Method
The Single Edge V-Notched Beam (SEVNB) method is a well-known method to determine the R-curve of a material. Knowing the applied force and the corresponding crack length, the fracture toughness can
Computer-controlled stable crack growth as a reliable and fast method to determine subcritical crack growth
Subcritical crack growth of synthetic fused silica glass is investigated using the single-edge-V-notched-beam method. The measurement was performed in a very stiff four-point bending device, which is
Effect of Notch Root Radius on the Fracture Toughness of Epoxy and 0.5 wt% Amino MWCNTs-Reinforced Nanocomposite
Significantly improved fracture toughness can be imparted by introducing amino multi-walled carbon nanotubes to neat epoxy resin. The present work reports on the fracture toughness evaluation of neat
Automated Control of Stable Crack Growth for R-Curve Measurements in Brittle Materials
Stable crack advance is required for a reliable crack growth resistance (R-Curve) measurement. In bending experiments, manual control of the mechanical load and observation of the growing crack is
Sub-10-micrometer toughening and crack tip toughness of dental enamel.
Tough Alumina/Polymer Layered Composites with High Ceramic Content
Ceramic composites found in nature, such as bone, nacre, and sponge spicule, often provide an effective resolution to a well-known conflict between materials' strength and toughness. This arises, on
Characterizing dental enamel’s mechanical properties from milli- to nanometer length scales
Understanding the structure-property relationship of enamel is a basis to improve restorative and preventive dentistry. This work is the first to systematically characterize enamel according to its

EFFECTS OF CRACK LENGTH, NOTCH ROOT RADIUS AND GRAIN SIZE ON FRACTURE TOUGHNESS OF FINE CERAMICS
Generally, fracture toughness and fracture stress of ceramics depend on crack length, notch root radius and grain size. These three parameters are most important when assessing the integrity of
Effect of Notch‐Root Radius on the Fracture Toughness of a Fine‐Grained Alumina
The dependence of K IC on the notch-root radius has been examined for a notch radius as small as a few micrometers in a dense, fine-grained, polycrystalline alumina ceramic. The notch radius can be

Influence of narrow starter notches on the initial crack growth resistance curve of ceramics
In experimental R-curve investigations crack development usually starts from notches. The validity of R-curves depends on the size of the notch root radius. This influence is completely ignored in

R‐Curve Determination for the Initial Stage of Crack Extension in Si3N4
In experimental R-curve investigations crack development usually starts from notches. The validity of R-curves depends on the size of the notch root radius. This influence is ignored in many cases.
