Paper Title:
Crack Tip Shielding from a Plastic ‘Inclusion’
  Abstract

This paper presents a very brief overview of the philosophy underlying a plastic inclusion approach to defining the boundary stresses imposed on the applied elastic stress or displacement field by the plastic deformation attendant on crack growth in a ductile material. It leads to two new fracture mechanics parameters, KR and KS. KR defines a retardation component arising from wake contact and the Poisson’s contraction associated with the plastic zone, whilst KS describes a compatibility-induced component arising from shear at the elastic-plastic interface. These additional components imply that KF is not directly comparable with KI, as it describes the net driving force on the crack from the applied load.
