INFLUENCE OF NOTCH WIDTH AND LENGTH ON CRACK INITIATION IN 3PB SPECIMENS
Seitl S., Klusák J., Keršner Z.
pages 202 - +5p., full text

The paper presents the influence of the various notch depths for the range of starting notch width on a crack initiation in three-point bending specimens. These specimens are the most frequently used for fracture laboratory testing, especially of quasi-brittle cement-based composites. It is shown that the values of fracture toughness obtained from the tests of specimens with larger widths with various length of the starting notch can be overestimated.
