16 /18 M.Chrzanowski: Strength of Materials SM2-12: Fracture Three typical cases (modes) can be distinguished: Stress intensity factors were calculated for different configuration of loading and specimen geometry (G.Sih) Mode I - Tearing; crack surfaces separate perpendicularly to the crack front. Mode II – In-plane shear; crack surfaces slide perpendicularly to the crack front Mode III – Out-of-plane shear; crack surfaces slide parallely to the crack front. KIKI K II K III Cracking

17 /18 M.Chrzanowski: Strength of Materials SM2-12: Fracture Design criteria are: K I < K Ic K II < K IIc K III < K IIIc where K Ic, K IIc, K IIIc are critical values of corresponding stress factors, being determined experimentally. Cracking
