Mixed-mode fracture of structural ceramics under a biaxial stress state was investigated by an anticlastic bending test using the controlled surface flaw technique. The stress state of the anticlastic bending specimen is biaxial. This test enables the study of fractures under pure mode I, pure mode II, or any combination of mode I and mode II loading. To discuss the experimental results, a parameter “T” was introduced to the modified maximum hoop stress criterion. This parameter represents frictional effects of crack interfaces on the mixed-mode fracture and can be obtained experimentally. Relative magnitudes of mode I and mode II stress intensity factors and the directions of non-coplanar crack extension angles were predicted using the parameter “T.” Reasonable agreement with the experimental results was obtained.
