Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation and Analysis on Crack Path Deviation in Brittle Solid
  Abstract

Ductile tearing of brittle solid with initial crack is studied numerically. This work is focused on the simulation and analysis of crack path deviation for the respective configuration and the study of relation between crack length and the fracture resistance, and that the configuration of fracture surface is also observed. The simulating tool is a novel numerical code, 3D Realistic Failure Process Analysis code (abbreviated as RFPA3D). The simulating investigation has shown that the fracture resistance decreases with the increase of the angle between the crack ends and horizontal direction. Due to heterogeneity of materials distribution, crack path deviation towards the softer zone or elements is observed. The topography of the non-planar fracture surface has plotted. Concluding the simulation made in the present study, the problem of crack extension in the brittle solid can be handled by RFPA3D. Fracture resistance can be predicted and the crack path deviation be simulated, if the model parameters have been carefully identified and the mesh design is adequate. So this work is beneficial to choose safe load-spots and predicate the direction of the crack path deviation.
