Through-the-thickness short cracks are grown from a semi - circular edge notch. Growth rates under constant amplitude loading at four different stress ratios are compared with that of long cracks. Except for the initial dip no anomalously higher growth rate is observed for these short cracks. The dip in the growth rate seems to disappear at high stress ratio. Both the short and the long cracks show a stress level effect on growth rate at stress ratio of -1.0. Available information on crack closure behavior at high stress ratio explains the observed trend. 13; 13;
