Study on the Stress Intensity Factors of Double Cracks Normal to and Dwelling on the Interface in the Cladding Material Structure
Based on the theoretical study on the tip stress intensity factor (SIF) of the crack normal to and dwelling on the interface, using the finite element software ANSYS, the SIFs of the double interface cracks normal to and dwelling on the interface in cladding material structure are studied by changing the crack spacing, the crack length, the cladding thickness ratio, the load and the crack location. The results show that, the crack SIFs become larger with the increase of the crack spacing, the crack length and the load, they become smaller with the increase of the coating thickness ratio, that the SIF of the crack close to the boundary becomes smaller with the increase of the distance between the crack and the boundary, and that the SIF of the crack in the middle of the interface becomes larger with the decrease of the crack distance.
