Study on Quasi-Static Growing Crack Field in Visco-Elastic Compressible Material
A mechanical model of the visco-elastic compressible material is established in order to investigate the viscous effect in quasi-static growing crack-tip field. The constitutive equations on the visco-elastic compressible material are deducted. Through asymptotic analysis, it is shown that in the stable creep growing stage, the elastic-deformation and the visco-deformation are equally dominant in the near-tip field, as r-1/(n-1). The asymptotic solutions of separative variable in the crack-tip field are aslo obtained. According to numerical calculation, the curves of stress, stain and displacement are given. The results indicate that the near-tip fields are mainly governed by the creep exponent ; the stress fields of mode I and mode II is slightly affected by the elastic compressible deformation; the strain and displacement fields of mode I are deeply affected by the elastic compressible deformation. However, the strain and displacement fields of mode II are less affected by the elastic compressible deformation. The asymptotic solutions of dynamic growing crack-tip field gained here can conveniently degenerate the incompressible case, when the Poisson ratio , named as HR field. The conclusions can provide the references for further studying the dynamic growing crack-tip field in compressible material.
