The energy release rates of beech specimens bonded by linear friction welding were determined using double cantilever beam (DCB) tests. The analysis of the results was carried out with the experimental compliance method, which is based on the linear-elastic fracture mechanics. The compliance relation was approximated to a third-order polynomial equation for smoothing and followed by calculation of least squares. This analysis method had not been previously used for glued connections in mode I. It...
