... Abstract The pseudo-compact tension ( p CT) method recently proposed by Muñoz-Ibáñez et al. (2020) is a satisfactory approach to measure mode I fracture toughness ( K IC ) in rocks and other materials using disc-shaped samples loaded under pure tensile conditions. In contrast to other methods...

... on their strength anisotropy. In the article, the anisotropy of a mechanical property, i.e. the fracture toughness, of migmatized gneiss is discussed. For this purpose, series of semi-circular bend tests were carried out on specimens of migmatized gneiss with a metamorphic foliation. The methodology used...
