automated system for measuring crack propagation in Double Cantilever
Beam (DCB) and End Notch Flexure (ENF) Specimen Tests. The
CrackTrack is designed to provide an accurate and economical method
to monitor crack growth in Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) specimens
used in a vast number of fracture/fatigue mechanics experiments.
The device works in association with a consumable crack gage mounted
directly on the test specimen and is very efficient in tracking
crack growth accurately. CrackTrack has its own power supply and
is hooked directly to the wall outlet. The analog output from the
gage enables setups with any testing machine and the simple calibration
ensures rapid data analysis from the tests.
