Abstract
The characterization of the fracture toughness of polyolefin composites filled with inorganic particles is commonly solved by means of standardized testing procedures based wherther on the Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM) and the Elastic-Plastic Fracture Mechanics approaches. Fracture parameters as Kc, Gc and Jc are obtained and managed as "material" parameters in plain strain conditions. Nevertheless, particulate polyolefin composites are often in form of film or sheet, making difficul...
