Paper Title:
The Prediction of Fatigue Crack Opening Behavior Using Cyclic Crack Tip Opening Displacement by Finite Element Analysis
  Abstract

An elastic-plastic finite element analysis (FEA) is performed to examine the opening behavior of fatigue crack, where the contact elements are used in the mesh of the crack tip area. The relationship between fatigue crack opening behavior and cyclic crack tip opening displacement was studied in the previous study. In this paper, we investigate the effect of the element size when predict fatigue crack opening behavior using the cyclic crack tip opening displacement obtained from FEA. The cyclic crack tip opening displacement is well related to fatigue crack opening behavior.
