Quantification of Influence of Epoxy Layer Between Interface Steel-Concrete on Calibration Curves for Modified Compact Tension Test
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this study is to investigate the use of compact tension specimen calibration curves for evaluation data of fracture properties measurement performed on modified compact tension specimen made from cement based composites. From literature, the well-known calibration curve for compact tension specimen is compared with calibration curves for Modified compact tension specimen that are obtained from numerical calculation. The obtained results are quantified and accuracy of solution is discussed. The suggested curves could be preferably used for determining of the fracture parameters.
