This study developed and analyzed a modification of the blister
test permitting nearly constant strain energy release rate testing of
adhesive bonds. The work consisted of three parts; (1) development of
the testing technique to evaluate strain energy release rate and to
record the time dependent nature of the fracture process, (2)
numerical analysis of the constrained blister test to determine the
applicability of an approximate solution for several materials, and
(3) development of an. analytical technique to evaluate the strain
energy release rate for relatively stiff specimens.
