Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a cumulative-damage fracture model is introduced which expresses the strain to fracture as a function of the strain rate, temperature and pressure, and the model is evaluated by comparing computed results with cylinder impact tests and biaxial (torsion-tension) tests.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, an efficient technique for evaluating stress intensity factors is presented, based on the crack closure integral, which can be used with a constant strain finite element stress analysis and a coarse grid.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, an analysis of the stress distribution acting on the fracture surfaces shows that the local compressive stress maxima may exceed the yield stress of the material and that crack closure may influence the shape of the striation pattern.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, an empirical stress-intensity factor equation for a surface crack as a function of parametric angle, crack depth, crack length, plate thickness and plate width for tension and bending loads was presented.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, an extended finite element method is applied to modeling growth of arbitrary cohesive cracks, which is governed by requiring the stress intensity factors at the tip of the cohesive zone to vanish.
