Abstract: The INSTRON DaDN software has the provision to use the compliance method of crack growth measurement for standard specimens. The relationship between compliance and crack length is given in the form of a polynomial equation whose coefficients assume different values for different specimen geometries. In the present work an attempt has been made to determine the coefficients for a non-standard (single-edge-notch tension) specimen using experimental data and also by Finite Element Method (FRANC2D software). It is found that the coefficients obtained by Finite Element method gives better crack length estimates for the above specimen geometry in comparison to the coefficients obtained experimentally.
