Objectives of Study To model graphite biaxial failure data we need a failure criteria The Shetty mixed mode fracture mechanics criteria when combined with a Microstructural fracture model can describe the biaxial data, but require knowledge of KIIc Thus we need to define KIIc for the graphite grades of interest Preferably measure KIIc by two techniques (verification) Determine if KIIc is subject to influence from texture and specimen volume

Introduction

**Shetty Mixed Mode Fracture Mechanics**

Shetty mixed mode fracture criteria and Burchell fracture model for graphite are combined to predict bi-axial failure envelope and failure probabilities KI is the mode I stress-intensity factor, KII is the mode II stress-intensity factor, and KIc is the mode I critical stress-intensity factor (or mode I fracture toughness) and C is an empirical constant (the Shetty shear-sensitivity coefficient) D.

Specimen Geometries

15
**Determining the Shear Fracture Toughness, KIIc, for two grades of graphite**

Two promising specimen geometries were selected Cracked Chevron Notched Brazilian Disc (CCNBD) Specimen Similar to centrally slotted disc which has been used in the past for graphite, hence some literature data – central notch is cut from both sides with slitting saw to form chevron, thus difficult to vary specimen volume & geometry. Mixed mode thus can measure KIc or KIIc Double Edge Notched Compression (DENC) Specimen Relatively simple slotted rectangular geometry, thus easy to vary specimen volume & geometry. Has been used to test concrete, but NO graphite literature.

16
**Determining the Shear Fracture Toughness, KIIc, for two grades of graphite**

CCNBD Specimen The notch is cut with a circular slitting saw from both sides of the specimen, thus the solid ligament has a “chevron” shape on either end of the central slot. Same geometry gives mixed fracture modes or pure KIc or KIIc depending on the test angle φ.
