Dynamic Stress Intensity Problem of SH-Wave by Double Linear Cracks near a Circular Hole


Article Preview

In mechanical engineering, circular hole is used widely in structure design. When the structure is overloaded or the load is changed regularly, cracks emerge and spread. Based on the former study of dynamic stress concentration problem of SH wave by a crack originating at a circular hole edge, in this paper, the method of Green’s function is used to investigate the problem of dynamic stress intensity problem of double linear cracks near a circular hole impacted by incident SH-wave. The train of thought for this problem is that: Firstly, a Green’s function is constructed for the problem, which is a fundamental solution of displacement field for an elastic space possessing a circular hole and a linear crack while bearing out-of-plane harmonic line source force at any point; Secondly, in terms of the solution of SH-wave’s scattering by an elastic space with a circular hole and a linear crack, anti-plane stresses which are the same in quantity but opposite in direction to those mentioned before, are loaded at the region where the second crack is in existent actually, we called this process “crack-division”; Finally, the expressions of the dynamic stress intensity factor(DSIF) of the cracks are given when the circular hole and double linear crack exist at the same time. Then, by using the expressions, an example was provided to show the effect of circular hole and cracks on the dynamic stress intensity factor of the cracks.
