1998 (English)In: Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, ISSN 0045-7825, E-ISSN 1879-2138, Vol. 160, no 1-2, 115-131 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The remeshing option of the commercial FE-code ABAQUS is used to study crack propagation in elastic-plastic materials. Propagation is accomplished with a combination of remeshing and nodal relaxation. The results are compared with analyses using nodal release only. Substantial crack growth is achieved with less computer time and higher accuracy than in conventional FE analysis.
