Paper Title:
Fracture Toughness Calculation by Movable Cellular Automata Method
  Abstract

Fracture toughness calculation by Movable Cellular Automata (MCA) method is demonstrated in this study in order to verify the validity of application of MCA method to the fracture problems. Two different geometries: edge-cracked strip and center cracked plate tension specimen have been considered to simulate numerically, which make place in real experiments. Soda-Lime silica glass for brittle material, AISI 1040 Steel and Aluminum Alloy 2024 for ductile materials were used, respectively. Fulfillment of basic principles of fracture mechanics has been checked. In MCA method, special fracture criterion is used to describe the process of crack propagation and critical stress and displacement was obtained, which are used as input data for evaluating the fracture toughness. In comparisons with table data, the results showed the sufficient agreement, which states the facility of the MCA method in application to the fracture problems.
