Stress Field Analysis of Mode II Periodic Cracks-Tip
The cracks-tip field on ModeⅡperiodic cracks of infinite orthotropic fiber reinforcement composite plate subjected to the concentrated force was studied. With the introduction of the Westergaard stress function and application of complex function theory and undetermined coefficients method, mechanical problem is changed into partial differential boundary value problem. Owing to the distribution of periodic cracks, stress intensity factor(SIF) depends on the shape factor, which is greatly influenced by the crack spacing and the crack length. The results show that interaction happens between the periodic cracks, and that scale effect of the stress intensity factor in cracks-tip is obvious.
