Abstract

The mode I fracture parameters for an orthotropic body are directly calculated from full-field deformation measurements provided by Digital Image Correlation (DIC). Three complementary and direct approaches are evaluated and compared: (i) the determination of the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) by fitting the displacement field using the analytical expression proposed by Lekhnitskii; (ii) the determination of the J-Integral by using the Energy Domain Integral (EDI) formulation on the raw DIC data; and (iii) the calculation of the J-Integral using the EDI approach on the displacement data fitted using Lekhnitskii's formulation. A comparative experimental study is performed by testing an IM7/8552 cross-ply laminate, and the effect of different parameters is analysed and discussed. The outcomes of this work show that, if an accurate choice of the parameters is performed, the different approaches lead to the same results.
