elements with embedded singularities may not consist- ently satisfy these criteria. The accuracy of FRANC has been proven in numerous applications [e.g. ]. We constructed finite element models of two specimen geometries that we hereafter refer to as MRS and MRF. Finite Element (FE) analysis was used to determine the gradient of water concentration in both specimens and to validate the use of the modified DCB specimens, comparing the fracture .

All kinds of static, dynamic and fatigue fracture problems are treated in two- and three-dimensional elastic and plastic structural components. The usage of the various solution techniques is demonstrated by means of sample problems selected from practical engineering case studies/5(4).

Finite Elements in Fracture Mechanics, a book written by Kuna Finite element methods applied to two fracture test specimens. book, is dedicated to this very application of the FE method.

Studies by Becker et al. () and Mohammed et al. () are two Author: Meinhard Kuna. Extended Finite Element and Meshfree Methods provides an overview of, and investigates, recent developments in extended finite elements with a focus on applications to material failure in statics and dynamics.

This class of methods is ideally suited for applications, such as crack propagation, two-phase flow, fluid-structure-interaction, optimization and inverse analysis.

The purpose of this work is to verify by means of the finite element analysis, the fracture toughness concept and contribute to its full understanding. Also, it is hoped that applying finite element methods will help to determine the fracture toughness itself as well as to design the test specimens which may lead to find it out in the laboratory.

The result of developed approach is discussed based on the crack interaction limit (CIL) aspects and crack unification limit (CUL) in pertinent to the equality of two cracks to single crack rules in by: 2.

2 and 3. An effective finite element. The finite element method (FEM) is the most widely used method for solving problems of engineering and mathematical models.

Typical problem areas of interest include the traditional fields of structural analysis, heat transfer, fluid flow, mass transport. To recall discrete fracture methods, apart from the standard finite element with remeshing [25,39], one may indicate the cohesive zone or inter-element method [3,9,46,53], the.

Possibilities to model the crack tip singularities are mentioned. The relevant fracture parameters like J-Integral and COD and their correlation are evaluated from 2D and 3D elastic plastic finite element calculations of standard fracture toughness specimens.

The size and form of the plastic zone are shown. Fracture coalescence is a critical phenomenon for creating large, inter-connected fractures from smaller cracks, affecting fracture network flow and seismic energy release potential.

One distinguished advantage of applying the scaled boundary finite element method to finite fracture mechanics is that the required changes in the mesh are easily accommodated by shifting the crack tip within the cracked polygon without changing the global mesh structure. The developed framework is validated using four numerical by: VCCT) and extended finite element method (short for XFEM) have been utilized to simulate and analysis the fracture process of the three-point bending beam with initial notch based on the finite element software platform – Abaqus version The numerical results have shown that three different methods can be used to simulate different.

Spinal compression fractures commonly occur at the thoracolumbar junction. We have previously constructed a 3-dimensional whole-spine model from medical images by using the finite element method (FEM) and then used this model to develop a compression fracture model.

Concrete and bone specimens are idealized as two‐phase particle composites and are discretized into finite elements, including interface elements along the main potential crack paths.

The numerical results in tension and compression are described and compared with experimental observations. The present paper is concerned with elastic-plastic finite element investigations of rectangular double cantilever beam (rdcb) specimen shown in Fig.
