抜粋

Single-edge precracked-beam (SEPB) tests were performed on a commercial lead zirconate titanate (PZT) ceramic. Mechanical loading was applied by the crosshead displacement control of a screw-driven electromechanical test machine. The fracture toughness parameter KC was determined for various electric fields. A finite element analysis was also done to calculate the total potential energy release rate, mechanical strain energy release rate, and stress intensity factor for three-point flexure piezoceramic specimens with permeable and impermeable cracks under displacement and load control conditions. Numerical investigation and comparison with test data indicate that the energy release rate, upon application of the permeable model, is useful for predicting crack growth in PZT ceramic under electromechanical loading. Based on current findings, we suggest that the energy release rate criteria for the permeable crack are superior to fracture criteria for the impermeable crack.
