Paper Title:
Application of the Unified Strength Theory in Analyzing Fracture Strength
  Abstract

In practical engineering, the cracks are always mixed mode. The research on the mixed fracture criterion has an important significance in fracture mechanics and engineering. Stress state of the mixed mode cracks is complicated. A new unified strength theory considering the effects of all the three principal stresses is generalized into the fracture mechanics in this paper. The complex stress states are common characteristics between the mixed mode cracks and the unified strength theory. A unified fracture function criterion is established by using the unified strength theory in this paper. In the unified fracture function, the difference between tension and pressure and the effect of the intermediate principal stress σ2 are considered. With the variation of α = σt/ σc and failure parameter b , a series of mixed mode crack criteria are formed, and can be applied for many materials. The J-integral is calculated through FEM. According to the relation between the result and the stress intensity factor, Klc can be obtained. Then it is used in the unified fracture function. The unified fracture criterion is compared with those of other mixed mode criterions.
