DETERMINATION OF PLANESTRAIN FRACTURE TOUGHNESS(K 
IC
 )
EXPERIMENT NO.8
 AIM
 To determine K 
IC
of the given material experimentally.
 APPARATUS
1.
 
 Jewelers’
saw.
2.
 
 Vernier scale.
3.
 
Mechanical extensometer.
4.
 
CT specimen (compact tension).
 THEORY 
IC
is known as the plain strain fracture toughness of the material. It depends on the material only and is theoretically independent of the size, geometry and loading. For a CT specimen,
IC
=P
Q
.f(a/w)/(B.W 
1/2
 ) Where,P
Q
is the critical load,a is the crack length,B,W are the specimen dimensions. The required dimensions of the CT specimen are shown in the next page.
