Automatic 3D Crack Growth in Welded Structures
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
In this paper an automatic crack propagation program using the FE program ANSYS® is developed. The program evaluates the Stress Intensity Factors (SIF) along the root side of a weld line and automatically updates the size and shape of the crack front. An example of how to apply the program to a welded component and fatigue test of the component is shown atthe end of the paper.
