AbstractThis 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 loglinear 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.
