Paper Title:
On the Crack Propagation Trajectory of Central Cracked Plates under Mixed Mode Loading Conditions
  Abstract

A Finite Element (FE) programme for crack propagation was developed by using a source code written in the FORTRAN language to evaluate the Stress Intensity Factors (SIFs) and to predict the crack propagation trajectory. In this study, a Central Cracked Plate (CCP) with two holes under mixed mode (I & II) loading conditions is considered. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) combined with the concepts of Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM) provides a practical and convenient means to study the fracture and crack growth of the solid materials. The Displacement Extrapolation Technique (DET) is performed on this work in order to compute the stress intensity factors (SIFs) during the crack propagation. Additionally, to validate the capability and the reliability of this developed FE programme, the results of the current study are compared with experimental results from the literature.
