Delamination is a significant failure mode that has been the subject of extensive research in laminated structures. The interface in assembly structures often represents the susceptibly weak link and necessitates careful consideration to guarantee structural stability. It is of utmost significance to understand the behaviour of the delamination...

In the evolution of structural glass beam elements, the requirements for post-fracture load bearing capacity and safe failure behaviour have led to the development of reinforced and post-tensioned beams. Maximum bending capacity in the post-fracture state is normally associated with extensive yielding of the reinforcement, providing a safe...

In this paper, a numerical simulation method of mixed-mode fatigue crack propagation was explored using the extended finite element method (XFEM) and the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT). Both 2D and 3D numerical models were selected to simulate the fatigue crack propagation of steel specimens. Two coefficients were proposed to...

Designing and modeling compatibilized polymer blends require accurate interface model. In addition, it is possible that crazing occurs during failure of the interfaces leading to large deformation prior to complete failure and therefore must be accounted for by the interface model.<br/><br/>A preliminary literature review showed that existing...

This work studied the mix mode-I/II fracture behaviour of an aerospace-grade carbon fibre/epoxy composite that was interlayer-toughened by Polyamide-12 (PA), Polyphenylene-sulphide (PPS), Polyimide (PI), Polyethersulfone (PES) and Polyethylenimine (PEI) fibres. During the laminate curing process, the PA fibres melted, the PPS and PI fibres...

High performance structures require the use of different materials to meet their demanding requirements. Especially fibre reinforced polymer composites are nowadays often bonded to metals in order to take the most advantage of the materials properties and to minimize their disadvantages. However, the interface in such bi-material assemblies...

A computational 3D model that accounts for both nucleation and interface migration is a very useful tool to monitor and grasp the complexity of microstructure formation in low-alloyed steels. In the present study we have developed a 3D mixed-mode multigrain model for the austenite-ferrite and the austenite-ferrite-austenite formation capable...

This study presents calibration and validation of a cohesive extended finite element model for fatigue crack propagation in ductile materials. The approach relies on a separation between plasticity around the crack tip and fatigue crack growth at the crack tip such that the influence of plasticity on fatigue driving forces is predicted. This...

The goal of this paper is to evaluate the strain-based partitioning method (SBM), an analytical method based on beam analysis, for the mixed-mode fracture characterization of asymmetric cracks. The fracture energy is calculated at the crack tip of mixed-mode bending (MMB) test with asymmetric geometry and asymmetric material parameters. The...

The development of numerical simulation for Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) and Ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concretes (UHPFRC) is fundamental for the design and construction of related structures. The simplified engineering stress-strain relationship and the input values are necessary in the finite element modeling. Four...

In this work, the influence of a layer of glass fiber mat (GFM) inserted in a bi-material bonded joint interface is investigated as a toughening mechanism to improve the fracture performance of bonded structures. Composite-to-metal bonded specimens were manufactured by hand lay-up using two different consolidation processes: at room pressure...

Since welded joints in structures are known to be critical regions for crack initiation and growth, study of fatigue crack growth behavior of welded joints under various loading scenarios are essential. In present study, two groups of experiments were conducted. At first, fatigue crack growth behavior of Al5083 butt welded joint subjected to...

This paper demonstrates how the critical strain energy density in the delamination tip vicinity may be used to explain the physics of delamination growth under mixed mode I/II. A theory previously proposed to physically relate mode I and mode II delamination growth is further extended towards describing the onset of mixed mode I/II...

The dissemination of composite materials introduces applications of hybrid structures with composite and metal parts. The development of reliable methodologies to evaluate the performance of these structures is required. In this work, the mixed-mode fracture behaviour of a bi-material adhesively bonded joint is investigated. A new strain...

Multiphase alloys such as advanced high strength steels show limited ductility due to interface decohesion at internal boundaries. This interface decohesion is caused by dislocations that pile-up at interfaces in the material, where they cause a stress concentration. This stress concentration in turn can lead to interface decohesion, resulting...

The behaviour of 11 differently oriented iron-precipitate interfaces under mixed loading conditions is studied with molecular dynamics simulations. We find that the interface structure and the change in this structure play a key role in the response to the loading. The structure change is influenced by both the loading history and the loading...

In order to understand the physics of the delamination onset in laminated composites, an experimental investigation of delamination growth is presented. The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate that delamination onset occurs at lower values than Gc defined by the ASTM standards, and that the strain energy release rate level at which...

Structures are subjected to cyclic loads that can vary in direction and magnitude, causing constant amplitude mode I simulations to be too simplistic. This study presents a new approach for fatigue crack propagation in ductile materials that can capture mixed-mode loading and overloading. The extended finite element method is used to deal with...

In this paper, by considering the absorbed energy in the fracture process zone and extension of the minimum strain energy density theory for orthotropic materials, a new mixed mode I/II failure criterion was proposed. The applicability of the new criterion, to predict the crack growth in both laminated composites and wood species, was...

Damage tolerant designs are necessary for the continuous operation of aircraft engines which are subjected to harsh environmental influences during operation (e.g. large temperatures, foreign object damage of airfoils). One important aspect of damage tolerance is crack propagation which can be investigated via 3D numerical software. This Master...
