Abstract: A novel integral equation method is developed in this paper for the analysis of two-dimensional general piezoelectric cracked bodies. In contrast to the conventional boundary integral methods based on reciprocal work theorem, the present method is derived from Stroh’s formalism for anisotropic elasticity in conjunction with Cauchy’s integral formula. The proposed boundary integral equations contain generalized boundary displacement (displacements and electric potential) gradients and generalized tractions (tractions and electric displacement) on the non-crack boundary, and the generalized dislocations on the crack lines. The boundary integral equations can be solved using Gaussian-type integration formulas without dividing the boundary into discrete elements. The crack-tip singularity is explicitly incorporated and the generalized intensity factors can be computed directly. Numerical examples of generalized stress intensity factors are given to illustrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the present method.

Abstract: Thermal fracture-cutting technology (TFCT) for brittle materials has become the main technology for LCD glass substrate cutting to meet the low residual thermal stresses requirement. Based on the thermal weight function principle of fracture mechanics, this paper presents thermal weight function distributions for the mode-I and mode-II fracture model, and the fracture phenomenon under a variety of cutting paths, such as tilt crack, split crack, twist crack, and local buckling.

Abstract: Based on Dankert’s et al. [1] initial model for the elastic-plastic evaluation of fatigue crack growth in sheets providing elliptical notches, a generalized procedure enabling an improved evaluation of the effective ranges of the crack driving force (i.e. the J-Integral) as well as the application to arbitrary notched components has been developed [2]. The present paper presents the basic topics of the calculation model as well as its verification using experimental results from notched specimens with various notch shapes subjected to cyclic loading with various load ratios.

Abstract: . In this paper a variational technique is developed to calculate stress intensity factors with high accuracy using the element free Glerkin method. The stiffness and mass matrices are evaluated by regular domain integrals and the shape functions to determine displacements in the domain are calculated with radial basis function interpolation. Stress intensity factors were obtained by a boundary integral with a variation of crack length along the crack front. Based on a static reference solution, the transformed stress intensity factors in the Laplace space are obtained and Durbin inversion method is utilised in order to determine the physical values in time domain. The applications of proposed technique to two and three dimensional fracture mechanics are presented. Comparisons are made with benchmark solutions and indirect boundary element method.
