Abstract

Fracture of the breakable isostatic graphite is concerned using the experimental and theoretically, the plates containing nicks holes key subject to varying degrees of mixed task. The main purpose of this work is a double one. In the first place, in order to offer a new set of experimental results on fracture of samples of graphite scored, with different values of the load mixed and radii notch and which may be helpful for researchers, as it enlarges the very limited data available; and secondly, to provide a criterion fracture of the polycrystalline graphite under the conditions mentioned above. The main purpose of this work is to offer a new set of experimental results (70 new data) on the fracture of the samples of the loose graphite of key holes, the different values of mixed loading, the tilt angle and radii notch and which may be of help as widens the very limited data available. By using the value of the average density of the stem of energy in a well defined, a criterion of fracture of the polycrystalline graphite under the conditions referred to above, it is proposed to predict the static resistance of the samples taken into account. The third part of the work deals with the analysis of the direction of initiation of fracture and spread of the crack in the early. The average value of the stem density of energy in a well defined is used to predict the static resistance of the samples taken into account. Good agreement is found between the experimental data for the tasks critical failure and the theoretical predictions based on average constant strain density of energy on the volume of the material.
