Evaluation of Failure Behaviour of Coated Anisotropic Materials for Dental Implants
This paper presents the results of an experimental procedure where a grid is applied to the edge of a specimen and the local crack-tip displacement fields are calculated using finite element technique. Increasingly, the objective of finite element simulations is to predict the response of the mechanics of material failure are related to microstructural process that occur in the materials as a result of the loading conditions. At the same time, The influences of coating thickness, coating stiffness, and assume crack pattern on the stresses concentration between the neighbouring layers of material are evaluated. Consequently, one approach to simulating the response of structures is to explicity model the mechanisms of damage and failure in the material.
