We determine the static crack resistance of compact Richard’s specimens made of 17G1S steel and the critical crack opening displacement under the conditions of transverse shear (mode II). The specimens are tested under cyclic loading. Richard’s specimens are modernized with an aim to improve the conditions for the initiation and growth of mode II cracks. By using the digital image correlation method, we determine the distribution of strains near the notch tip.
