Finite Element Analysis of Secondary Cracks at a Crack Front under Pure Mode III Loading

Abstract:

Article Preview

Several hypotheses and concepts exist for the prediction of crack deflection angles from the analysis of the undisturbed stress distribution at the crack front. In this paper, a finite element analysis of small penny shaped secondary cracks with deflection angles ψ0 = π/4 at a pure mode III loaded crack front is presented. The results are compared with the solutions of the well-known 3D fracture criteria. The fracture mechanical analysis is performed by the highly effective MVCCI-method.
