    In this paper, constraint effect on ductile fracture initiation and propagation has been studied. Three-dimensional finite element analyses of mismatched welded joints made of high strength steel, have been performed for centre-cracked tensile (CCT) specimens. Different weld widths and material...

    A theoretical description and a computational method to calculate configurational forces in the context of the finite element (FE) method is presented. With respect to problems in short-time dynamics, the fully 3D-case and large deformations in hyper-elastic materials are taken into account. The...

    In this paper, the extended finite element method (X-FEM) is implemented to analyze fracture mechanics problems in elastic materials that exhibit general anisotropy. In the X-FEM, crack modeling is addressed by adding discontinuous enrichment functions to the standard FE polynomial approximation...

    The goal of this work is to prove that within the framework of fracture mechanics with Dugdale’s model of cohesive forces, small defects (compared to the material characteristic length) have no influence on the limit load that a structure can sustain. For that, we treat two cases: first,...

    The main objective of the present paper is numerical analysis of the micro crack propagation along a composite interface. Hence, the finite element technique was used to calculate the opening-mode and sliding-mode stress intensity factors. A two-dimensional linear elastic model was developed to...
