Evaluation of crack-terminating angles in heat-treated silica DCDC-specimens

Hettich, P.; Schell, K. G.; Rizzi, G.; Wagner, S.; Fett, T.

Cracks terminating at free surfaces are affected by local stresses in the surface region. Under residual compression, the crack front must retard and under residual tensile stresses advance, both compared with the crack contour in the absence of stresses. This effect can be used for an estimation of residual surface stresses in silica generated during the silica/water reaction and caused by volume swelling. A strong shielding stress intensity factor of about -2.5 MPa$\sqrt{m}$ was found for DCDC specimen heat-treated for 192h at 250°C in water. This result is a clear indication for compressive stresses developing in the water diffusion zone at the surface.
