Numerical simulations of crack-propagation histories in four cases of dynamic tear test experiments on 4340 steel are performed. The influence of the loss of contact of the specimen at various times with eithe the supports or the tup or both is critically examined. In each case, the variation of the dynamic K-factor, for the simulated crack-propagation history, is directly computed.
