Abstract:

This paper presents an experimental study of the strain-concentrations arising near the edges of elliptical cut-outs in uniformly strained, flat strips of polyurethane rubber filled with a high volume-percentage of an inorganic salt. The strain concentrations are studies under various conditions of uniform straining, for strains up to fracture initiation. The fracture mechanism at the root of the cut-out is studied micrographically. Author
