Abstract

This work describes the application of end loaded split and single-leg bending tests to the mixed-mode fracture characterization of wood. Experimental tests and numerical validation analyses were performed. A new data reduction scheme based on the crack equivalent concept is proposed. The method overcomes the difficulties inherent to these tests, such as crack length monitoring during propagation and influence of clamping conditions. The single-leg bending test is simpler to execute and provided accurate results. The obtained mixed-mode fracture energy is associated with the pure mode values and the obtained trend point to a linear fracture criterion as a candidate to describe the fracture behavior of the Pinus pinaster Ait. wood.

Keywords: cohesive damage model; end loaded split test; mixed-mode; single-leg bending test; wood
