Abstract: This work addresses the experimental identification of mode I cohesive law of wood bonded joints. The approach combines the double cantilever beam (DCB) test with both digital image correlation (DIC) and embedded fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. The spectrum geometric mean of the FBG reflected spectral response was determined, and the wavelength evolution was used to define the fracture process zone (FPZ) development phase. This evaluation allowed a consistent selection of experimental range of over which the identification procedure of mode I cohesive law is build up. Mode I crack length, Resistancecurve and cohesive law parameters are characterised and discussed. The strain energy release rate (G(I)) is determined from the P-delta curve by the compliance-based beam method (CBBM). The crack tip opening displacement (w(1)) is determined by post-processing displacements measured by DIC. The cohesive law in mode I (sigma(1)-w(1)) is then obtained by numerical differentiation of the G(1)-w(1) relationship.
