ASTM D5528 Interlaminar Fracture Toughness of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composites

ASTM D5528 determines the opening Mode I interlaminar fracture toughness, GIc, of continuous fiber-reinforced composite materials using the double cantilever beam (DCB) specimen. Susceptibility to delamination is one of the major weaknesses of many advanced laminated composite structures.
