Abstract: This paper reviews the use of the cracked Chevron-notched Brazilian disc (CCNBD) for fracture toughness testing. Theoretical and experimental backgrounds of the method are described. Some issues regarding the current development (i.e., recalibration) of the specimen geometry are presented and discussed. A number of geometries related to the CCNBD proposed recently for fracture toughness testing of rock are then introduced and commented on.
Keywords: Fracture toughness testing - Brazilian disc - CCNBD - stress intensity factor
