This data upload includes the experimental results from delaminating FRP-laminates. The experiment consists of DCB specimens where the beam ends are loaded with bending moments. A set-up of LVDTs and a clip-on extensometer are used to calculate the normal and tangential opening displacements at the crack-end.
This test series is examined and described in the following peer reviewed papers:
