Automatic 3-D crack propagation calculations: a pure hexahedral element approach versus a combined element approach

2009 (English)In: International Journal of Fracture, ISSN 0376-9429, E-ISSN 1573-2673, Vol. 157, no 1-2, 109-118 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This article presents an evaluation of two different crack prediction approaches based on a comparison of the stress intensity factor distribution for three example problems. A single edge notch specimen and a quarter circular corner crack specimen subjected to shear displacements and a three point bend specimen with a crack inclined to the mid-plane are examined. The stress intensity factors are determined from the singular stress field close to the crack front. Two different fracture criteria are adopted for the calculation of an equivalent stress intensity factor and crack deflection angle. The stress intensity factor distributions for both numerical methods agree well to available reference solutions. Deviations are recorded at crack front locations near the free surface probably due to global contraction effects and the twisting behaviour of the crack front. Crack propagation calculations for the three point bending specimen give results that satisfy intuitive expectations. The outcome of the study encourages further pursuit of a crack propagation tool based on a combination of elements.
