20, though the loads are higher). 21(a) and (b) illustrate the stress fields for a tpb specimen at two different J levels (note the way the x axis is normalised). ). At the higher load, Fig. 21(b), J dominance is lost and the HRR field agrees with the stress fields only very close to the crack tip, at distances less than the COD. For the ccp geometry, as shown in Fig. 21(c), even at the lower normalised J value the HRR field is not close to the stress fields in the specimen. The J levels at which J dominance for these two specimens are lost are consistent with the ASTM limits specified earlier.

The above has been derived for applied displacement. However since J is independent of the mode of loading it also holds for applied load. This form for J is convenient because, provided η is known, J in an experiment can be obtained from a load displacement history, which is easy to measure. Consider a three point bend specimen with a W under plane stress made of a rigid elastic, perfectly plastic material. 11, Limit load for an edge cracked beam under three point bending. Under displacement control the potential energy, U , is given by, U = Ue = P ∆ (see Fig.

5(KIC /σy )2 . This implies that the specimen dimensions are about 25 times larger than the plastic zone size. The requirement that the plate thickness, B, is much greater than the plastic zone also ensures that plane strain rather than plane stress conditions prevail. Under these conditions, specimens with the same K value will have the same crack tip fields and fracture will occur when the K value reaches the plane strain fracture toughness value, KIC . As will be seen in Section 2, as the specimen size gets smaller or the plastic zone gets bigger, the small scale yielding condition is not satisfied and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics must be used.
