Paper Title:
Finite Element Analyses of Modified Compact Tension Shear (MCTS)-Specimens under Mixed-Mode Loading Conditions
  Abstract

In this paper a detailed 3D-finite element analyses results of modified compact tension shear (MCTS)-specimens with an inclined crack plane or crack front under mixed-mode loading conditions are presented. It is found that under mixed-mode loading, a superposition of all fracture modes I, II and III can be generated along the straight crack front of MCTS-specimens, and the maximum of the total SERR along the crack front of two different MCTS-specimens is found at right hand side of crack front corner,where the risk of crack initial growth is highest. The computational fracture analysis is based on the calculation of separated energy release rates GI, GII and GIII along the crack front by the numerically highly effective modified virtual crack closure integral(MVCCI)-method.
