Abstract This paper presents a summary of the tests performed within a Versailles Project on Advanced Materials and Standards collaborative test programme to examine the measurement of mode II interlaminar fracture toughness using four different test methods based on end notched flexure, stabilised end notched flexure, end loaded split, and four point end notched flexure carbon fibre reinforced epoxy specimens. Tests were performed by members of the European Structural Integrity Society, the Japan Industrial Standards group, and the American Society for Testing and Materials. PRC/1546
