Cracks in Magnetoelectroelastic Solids under Impact Loading
In this paper, transient dynamic crack analysis in two-dimensional, linear magnetoelectroelastic solids is presented. For this purpose, a time-domain boundary element method (BEM) is developed and the elastodynamic fundamental solutions for linear magnetoelectroelastic and anisotropic materials are derived. The spatial discretization of the boundary integral equations is performed by a Galerkin-method while a collocation method is implemented for the temporal discretization of the arising convolution integrals. An explicit time-stepping scheme is developed to compute the discrete boundary data and the generalized crack-opening-displacements. To show the effects of the coupled fields and the different dynamic loading conditions on the dynamic intensity factors, numerical examples will be presented and discussed.
