Fracture toughness of porous materials – Experimental methods and data
We provide numerical experimental data and detailed information about the sample preparation and the experimental methods, used by different research groups for measuring the fracture toughness of porous materials. These data are supplemental information to the publication “A Geometric Model for the Fracture Toughness of Porous Materials,” , which is based on experimental data of ceramic and polymer materials. For the sake of completeness, we provide here also data from fracturing metallic foams. The corresponding theoretical curves, which are based on the model described in the reference, are given additionally in the diagrams. The utilized publications are not a comprehensive compilation of all corresponding measurements concerning porous materials, but should be seen as a typical set of respective experiments with the focus on the fracture toughness of porous materials. The discussion and interpretation are provided in the above-mentioned reference. © 2019 The Author(s)
