Article Preview

Two-dimensional (2D) finite element analyses have been carried out to study the crack opening displacement and stress intensity factor of a cracked centre-hole plate. With the different interference levels (2%, 4%, 6% and 8%) and acted by residual stress caused by cold expansion, the crack opening displacement, the stress intensity factor and J-integral around the crack tip is presented. With the different interference levels and acted by different applied loads , the crack opening displacement, the stress intensity and J-integral around the crack tip is also presented. The results of the 2D FEM analysis show, 1) with the different interference levels and acted by residual stress caused by cold expansion, the crack mouth is throughout closed and the middle part is open, but the opening displacement is constant; 2) under some applied loads, with the interference levels up, the stress intensity factor on the crack tip and J-integral, become weak gradually, then they keep constant values; 3) with the interference increases, the stress intensity factor and J-integral decreases. When the interference increases a certain value, the stress intensity factor and J-integral do not decrease and keep constant values.
