Abstract

This article discusses the J-integral-based single and multiple specimen techniques of the ASTM E 1737 test method for determining plane strain fracture toughness of polymeric materials. It describes the fracture toughness testing of thin sheets and films. The article concludes with information on the alternative methods for determining the fracture toughness of polymer materials.
