Numerical Analysis on Splitting Failure of Brittle Material
Realize the basic process of fracture analysis in ANSYS. The fore treatment program of crack propagation simulation is compiled by parameterization method of apdl. The calculation and analysis is automatic. ANSYS is well for simulating the structures which contain cracks and bugs. When the parameters are suitable, the propagation of cracks can be simulated well in ANSYS. The different phases of crack propagation are simulated. To compare with the results by theory, perfect the formation process and mechanism of splitting cracks.
