Elastic-Plastic Finite Element Analysis of the Effect of the Compressive Loading on the Crack Tip Plasticity

Abstract:

Article Preview

An elastic-plastic finite element analysis of the effect of the compressive loading on crack tip plasticity is presented. Two center-cracked panel specimens with different crack lengths are analysed under tension-compression loading. The size and shape of the crack tip reverse plastic zone, the crack opening profiles of the crack tip for short (0.1 mm) and long crack (2 mm) have been studied. The analysis shows that the compressive loading has a significant contribution towards the crack tip plasticity.
