AbstractThe failure behavior of an epoxy resin (EPON 826) was investigated by a series of tests on thin-walled tubular specimens and the results are presented in this paper. The tests were designed such that a constant octahedral shear strain rate was applied along different loading paths. The rate effect was also studied by changing the octahedral shear strain rate. The experimental investigation showed that a change in stress state influences the failure strengths and failure modes. The different failure strengths and failure modes are attributed to the influence of the hydrostatic component of stress. Changing the strain rate influenced the failure stress, but not the failure characteristics.
