Effective Use of Commercial FEM Software in 2-Dimentional Crack Problems

Abstract:

Article Preview

Finite element method (FEM) is used widely for various structural problems. However, in general, it is difficult to guarantee the accuracy of results obtained by commercial software of FEM. In this paper, a practical finite element technique for calculating the stress intensity factors with high accuracy is proposed. This technique is based on the characteristics of stress field due to a crack. In this study, the proposed method is applied to 2-dimentional crack problems.
