The present study aims at proposing a new generation of experimental protocol for analysing crack propagation in quasi brittle materials. The boundary conditions are controlled in real-time to conform to a predefined crack path. Servo-control is achieved through a full-field measurement technique to determine the pre-set fracture path and a simple predictor model based on linear elastic fracture mechanics to prescribe the boundary conditions on the fly so that the actual crack path follows at best the predefined trajec-tory. The final goal is to identify, for instance, non-local damage models involving internal lengths. The validation of this novel procedure is performed via a virtual test-case based on an enriched damage model with an internal length scale, a prior chosen sinusoidal crack path and a concrete sample. Notwithstanding the fact that the predictor model selected for monitoring the test is a highly simplified picture of the targeted constitutive law, the proposed protocol exhibits a much improved sensitivity to the sought parameters such as internal lengths as assessed from the comparison with other available experimental tests.
