Raue, Timothy (author)
This thesis introduces a new computational methodology to solve partial differential equations within cracked domains, focusing on coupling in-crack physics with the adjacent environment. The crack is represented discretely, allowing to describe explicitly the crack opening, which is a key parameter in the description of the in-crack physics....

There is a very popular fable, dating back to the early 1800s, about three little pigs that build their houses of different materials and a wolf that tries to catch them by blowing down their houses. From the three houses built from straws, sticks or bricks, only the house made out of bricks withstands the blow of the wolf. Although the moral of...

Finite Element Methods (FEMs) are widely employed for damage simulation in composites, with the Cohesive Zone Model (CZM) being particularly favored for its robustness and scalability. Despite the CZM's mesh-dependent nature, the Discontinuous Galerkin Cohesive Zone Model (DG/CZM) formulation allows for relatively arbitrary crack propagation...

In this second edition, which is the result of numerous revisions, updates and additions, the authors cover the basic concepts of fracture mechanics for both the linear elastic and elastic-plastic regimes. The fracture mechanics parameters K, G, J and CTOD are treated in a basic manner along with the test methods to determine critical values....

To fulfill the high-temperature application requirement of high-power electronics packaging, Cu nanoparticle sintering technology, with benefits in low-temperature processing and high-melting point, has attracted considerable attention as a promising candidate for the die-attach interconnect. Comprehensive mechanical characterization of the...

The demand to capture translaminar crack growth under fatigue loading scenarios led this work contribution to carry out the Finite Fracture Mechanics (FFM) method in fatigue damage growth and the application of the Paris model to generate the translaminar damage propagation prediction. The purpose of this study is to analyse the effect of...

Ice, a pervasive element across the Solar System, holds immense importance in understanding the response of the Earth to ongoing climate change as well as the dynamics of planetary bodies. This dissertation investigates ice fractures on terrestrial and planetary ice bodies, focusing on their impact on the melting of ice shelves in Antarctica and...

This thesis introduces the Discontinuity-Enriched Finite Element Method (DE-FEM) for the modeling of dynamic multiple crack growth problems including branching and merging, as an alternative to eXtended/Generalized Finite Element Method (X/GFEM). DE-FEM differs from X/GFEM by placing the enriched degrees of freedom (DOFs) directly along the...

Developing accurate and robust numerical approaches that are capable of modeling fracture in solids has been a challenging undertaking in the computational mechanics community for decades. Models based on a continuous formulation or on a discontinuous one have been proposed by numerous authors, expanding upon abilities and disadvantages of these...

The need for more accurate cleavage modelling is particularly acute for a new generation of high-strength steels because they obtain their favourable properties through complex, multi-phase microstructures. One of the challenges in cleavage modelling is the strong sensitivity to material characteristics at the microlevel. This thesis proposes a...

Costa Farinha, Daniel (author)
A new multiscale fracture mechanics methodology is being developed at TU Delft for composite materials. This methodology aims to unlock the use of hierarchical multiscale frameworks to link sub-ply fracture processes to laminate failure. In this thesis, this methodology is extended to 3D, both in terms of its analytical formulation and the...

The fatigue behavior of an adhesively bonded joint is of key importance to its long-term structural integrity. However, the complex stress distribution inside a bonded joint does not make it easy to evaluate the fatigue behavior. This chapter discusses the various approaches that have been developed for predicting the fatigue behavior of...

This article presents an overview of methods for analyzing the facture and failure of adhesives. Special attention is given to stress analysis in adhesive bonds, as the difficulty of performing an accurate stress analysis is a major limitation of many failure analysis methods. The article also covers the effect of manufacturing and...

After half a century of developing fatigue delamination prediction models, where accuracy seems more important than physical understanding, this research aims to merge both aspects. To that aim, strain energy release (SER) within the fatigue load cycle was studied using acoustic emission. The correlation between the measured strain energy...

To accurately analyze the fracture behavior of piezoceramics at small length scales, flexoelectricity must be considered along with piezoelectricity. Due to its dependence on size, flexoelectricity predominates at the micro- and nano-length scales. Additionally, crack tips having the largest strain gradient state cause large flexoelectricity...

Flat glass is a material which is used extensively in almost all the buildings, mainly as infill for windows or facade panels. However, neither glass production nor its recycling are sustainable processes, as both incorporate the use of gas furnaces, which produce high amounts of CO2 emissions. Thus, the re-use of glass seems the only way to...

Cracks, which could nucleate and propagate in engineering structures, could have an adverse effect on mechanical performance and even lead to catastrophic failure. Thus, it is critical to investigate structural behavior under fracture, which requires an appropriate modeling methodology for fracture analysis. Furthermore, designing structures...

Delamination growth in fibre reinforced polymer composites is generally evaluated with experiments that have been standardized for quasi-static load conditions. These tests characterize unidirectional delamination growth in mode I (DCB), mode II (ELS or ENF) of mixed mode conditions (MMB). However, little attention is paid in literature to the...

Challenges of reliable prediction of resistance of bonded joints lie in the complexity of stress concentrations, multiple crack paths, mode-mixity and sudden crack propagation. The new Technical Specification for Design of fibre-polymer composite structures (TS) is bridging this gap by providing comprehensive sets of design recommendations and...
