Surface Crack Mesh Generation with Factory Roof under Mixed Mode Loading Using a Tetrahedral Element
Recent development of crack propagation analysis is rapidly advanced and its applications are being extended. Usually finite element method is utilized for the analysis. One of the most important tasks is mesh generation which requires fully automated system and no failures. It is very difficult to meet all geometrical and mechanical requirements for a surface mesh generation. Recent studies show a factory roof is easily generated under mixed mode loading. How to generate surface crack tetrahedral mesh without failures and surface crack analysis with factory roof are presented.
