we investigated the effect of reflected stress wave on crack speed in silicon single crystal. The experiments were performed using our coefficient of thermal expansion mismatch (CTEM) method, which enables a quasi-static loading. By evaluating the experimental energy-speed relationship of a fast crack, we show small variations (~5-8%) in crack speed when compared to Freund equation of motion, meaning that the effect of reflected stress wave on crack speed is limited.
