    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 15.03, 2015 Specifies the determination of the opening Mode 1 interlaminar fracture toughness, G[Ic], of continuous fiber-reinforced composite materials using the double cantilever beam (DCB) specimen.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This test method describes the determination of the opening Mode I interlaminar fracture toughness, GIc, of continuous fiber-reinforced composite materials using the double cantilever beam (DCB) specimen (Fig. 1).

    1.2This test method is limited to use with composites consisting of unidirectional carbon fiber and glass fiber tape laminates with brittle and tough single-phase polymer matrices. This limited scope reflects the experience gained in round-robin testing. This test method may prove useful for other types and classes of composite materials; however, certain interferences have been noted (see 6.5).

    1.3The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment.

    1.5This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
