A novel procedure is proposed, which improves an earlier one, to determine the critical value of the J-integral at high loading rates. A more detailed analysis of such a test along with some experimental results has been published elsewhere. The present procedure is based on ASTM Test for JIc, a Measure of Fracture Toughness (E 813). To perform the impact test, the split Hopkinson pressure bar concept is used together with the wedge-loaded compact tension specimen (WLCT).
This paper provides a better understanding of the proposed procedure by a more accurate analysis of the frictional effects which occur between the loading wedge and the WLCT specimen. In addition, a unique procedure has been developed to measure the coefficient of Coulomb friction in the real environment of fracture KIc or JIc tests.
