The Calculation of Stress Intensity Factors and the Analysis of Propagation Characteristic of Crack at Hole
This paper focusing on the crack at hole of guyed-mast’s ear-plate connecting cables and shaft of guyed-mast, adopting two degree of freedom crack propagation model, track the crack propagation according to the increment of the deepest point and the surface point on the crack front of crack at hole of guyed-mast’s ear-plate. The stress intensity factors of I,II and III type crack with given shape and size have been calculated via finite element method, and a numerical method of calculating stress intensity factors with any shape and size crack has been proposed; furthermore according to modified I, II and III type compound crack propagation velocity formula on the basis of Paris crack propagation velocity formula, we analyzed the changing of crack shape parameter a/c with crack size parameter a/T of crack at hole of ear-plate connecting cable and shaft of guyed-mast by numerical integration method and obtained the propagation characteristic.
