SUGGESTED METHOD FOR DETERMINING MODE 1 FRACTURE TOUGHNESS USING CRACKED CHEVRON NOTCHED BRAZILIAN DISC (CCNBD) SPECIMENS

This test is intended to measure the fracture toughness of rock materials. The main use of this property is for the classification and characterization of intact rock with respect to its resistance to crack propagation. Other important uses are either as an index for rock fragmentation processes such as crushing and tunnel-boring, or in the analysis of hydraulic or explosive fracturing and stability. (A)
