Compression-Loaded Cracked Cylinder - Stress Intensity Factor Evaluation
As polymer parts are made by injection molding, most defects are usually caused by the shrinkage of material during solidification. These defects are then source of cracks in these parts. Present contribution is dealing with central cracked compression loaded polymer cylinder. In order to describe crack behavior under operational load, parametrical finite element model was developed. As results of this study stress intensity factors for central crack with different crack lengths are determined to describe crack behavior.
