In this study, the effects of different loading conditions on the local behavior and
crack growth in a particulate composite material were investigated.
under investigation contains hard particles embedded in a rubbery matrix.
loading conditions, constant strain rate and constant strain, and two confined
pressures, ambient and 8697 KPa, were considered.
The experimental data were
analyzed and the results are discussed.
In past years, a considerable amount of work has been done studying crack
growth behavior in particulate composite materials under different loading
conditions at ambient pressure [I-41.
The basic approach used in characterizing
the crack growth behavior in the particulate composite materials is based on
