    We construct the exact solution of the problem of circular interface crack in an inhomogeneous transversely isotropic space under the action of arbitrary loads applied to the crack lips. The formulas for the stress intensity factors on the boundary of the crack and the values of these factors...

    The direct boundary integral equations method has been applied to analyze stresses in a fracture process zone (a crack bridged zone) and to calculate stress intensity factors module for structures with bridged interfacial cracks under mechanical loading. Bridged zones at interfacial cracks are...

    We deduce a singular integral equation of the problem of stress-strain state of a circular disk weakened by a rectilinear nonradial edge crack whose lips are subjected to the action of an arbitrary self-balanced load. For the case of a pressure uniformly distributed over the crack lips, we...

    The welded structures have a broad applicability (car industry, aeronautical, marine, pipelines, etc.). The welding being an assembled process, presents both advantages and disadvantages. A simple existing defect after welding can generate a catastrophic fracture. This work studies the fatigue...

  • Penny-Shaped Dugdale Crack in a Transverse Isotropic Medium. Li, X.; Yang, D.; Chen, W.; Kang, G. // International Journal of Fracture;Aug2012, Vol. 176 Issue 2, p207 

    Analytical results for a penny-shaped crack with a plastic zone at the crack front are given. The crack is embedded in an infinite transversely isotropic elastic medium and is assumed to be subjected to two identical axisymmetric loads on the upper and lower crack faces. The size of the plastic...

    The widespread interest on the hereditary behavior of biological and bioinspired materials motivates deeper studies on their macroscopic "minimal" state. The resulting integral equations for the detected relaxation and creep power-laws, of exponent β, are characterized by fractional...

    Earthquake simulation tests of a one-third-scale, three-story, three-bay, planar reinforced concrete frame were conducted to gain insight into the dynamic collapse of older-type construction. Collapse of the frame was the result of shear and axial failures of columns with widely spaced...
