There are standardized fracture test methods for the so-called mode I (tensile opening) [14] and mode II (in-plane shear) [15] interlaminar fracture toughness or delamination resistance, as well as mixed mode I/II [16], all under constant displacement loading.
Among specific topics are preparing thick adherend shear test specimens, quasi-testing bulk compression on flat specimens, the pin-and-collar test method, the compact mixed mode fracture test method, testing adhesive bonds under peel and shear loads at increased velocities, and measuring time-dependent crack growth.
GTI's hydraulic fracturing research began as early as 1983, leading to "proof-of-concept" experiments at its Hydraulic Fracture Test Site (HFTS) in the Rocky Mountains.
After some initial testing to find the optimum moisture content of the PBT needed to make non-brittle parts consistently, PTC was able to mold parts that were virtually 100% defect-free and passed the fracture test.
