Fracture Mechanics


the study of crack tip and crack growth behaviour.

Texts HT17 , HT18 , R0018 ,
Seminars R0051, R0073 .


linear elastic fracture mechanics, when plastic zones around the crack tip are sufficiently small and so the stresses can be assumed to remain elastic.

Texts R0018 , R0095 , HT17 , HT18 ,
Benchmarks R0014 (S), R0020 , R0028 .


post-yield fracture mechanics, when the actual plastic behaviour around the studied crack tip is incorporated into the analysis. Also commonly referred to as EPFM (elastic-plastic fracture mechanics).
