Abstract: The viscosity of material is considered at propagating crack-tip. Under the assumption
that the artificial viscosity coefficient is in inverse proportion to the power law of the plastic strain
rate, an elastic-viscoplastic asymptotic analysis is carried out for moving crack-tip fields in
power-hardening materials under plane-strain condition. A continuous solution is obtained
containing no discontinuities. The variations of the numerical solution are discussed for mode I
crack according to each parameter. It is shown that stress and strain both possess exponential
singularity. The elasticity, plasticity and viscosity of material at the crack-tip only can be matched
reasonably under linear-hardening condition. The tip field contains no elastic unloading zone for
mode I crack.

Abstract: Fatigue crack growth under mixed mode loading conditions is simulated using S-FEM. By
using S-FEM technique, only local mesh should be re-meshed and it becomes easy to simulate crack
growth. By combining with auto-meshing technique, local mesh is re-meshed automatically, and
curved crack path is modeled easily. Plural fatigue crack problem is solved by this technique. For
two parallel crack problem, criteria of crack coalescence are proposed. By simulating this problem by
S-FEM, it is verified these criteria are conservative ones.

Abstract: Basing on the theoretical study on the stress intensity factor (SIF) of the crack inclined across the interface of the cermet cladding part, the finite element analysis (FEA) of the crack’s SIF is made. The change laws of the SIF with the load action angle , the load Q, the clad thickness ratio h1/h, the elastic modulus ratio E1/E2, the inclined angle of the crack β1, and the crack length ratio a1/a2 are obtained. The research results have theoretical and steering significance on the wide application of the cermet cladding part.

Abstract: 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.
