Crack Length Influence on Stress Intensity Factors for the Asymmetric Four-point Bending Testing of a Polyurethane Foam


Abstract:
Mixed mode four-point testing is performed on polyurethane foams. This paper presents only the results on the stress intensity factors (SIFs) obtained experimentally for a density of 325 kg/m3, although tests were done for three foam densities. An asymmetric four-point bending setup was used for determining the critical SIFs in Mode I and Mode II, and discussions on the influence of the initial crack length on the SIF values are done. As initial crack length is increased the theoretical predictions give a better comparison to experimentally obtained results.


Keywords:
mixed-mode; polyurethane foams; asymmetric four-point bending; crack length
