AbstractAn experimental investigation aimed at identifying the presence and onset of an asymptotic stable fracture region in the mode II fatigue delamination growth behaviour of composites is presented. The study is motivated by the possibility that experimental data sets, particularly those obtained at high R-ratios, may unknowingly contain data points within the asymptotic stable fracture region that influence its perceived log-linear behaviour and the fit of various log-linear delamination growth models. Results from the experimental investigation indicate that the asymptotic stable fracture region can extend to GIImax values as low as 0.7GIIc. The implications of this result on characterizing and fitting of various delamination growth models (including models assuming log-linear behaviour) to delamination growth behaviour are discussed.
