IMPROVED DYNAMIC NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF CRACK INITIATION, FAST CRACK PROPAGATION AND CRACK ARREST IN THE DCB SPECIMEN.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

The problem of crack initiation, fast crack propagation and crack arrest in the DCB specimen is investigated within the confines of two-dimensional linear elastic fracture mechanics. The analysis is performed using the SMF2D code which is based upon the simultaneous employment of an astatic and dynamic coordinate system, thus providing a continuous and smoother crack extension. Consequently, the obtained results are much more accurate and reliable. The code was applied to both the static and the dynamic cases yielding results which are found to be in excellent agreement with analytical and experimental findings.
