Abstract : Fracture induced by the reflection of stress waves has been examined in the past using experiments which are characterized by uniaxial strain conditions, and where the maximum principal stress is normal to the fracture plane. This report describes dynamic fracture where the strains are biaxial and the maximum principal stress is tangential to the fracture surface. (Author)
