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...

In this work, Floating Node Method (FNM), first developed for fracture modelling of laminate composites, is coupled with cell-wise strain Smoothed Finite Element Method (SFEM) for modelling 2D linear elastic fracture mechanics problems. The proposed method is termed as Smoothed Floating Node Method (SFNM). In this framework, FNM is used to...

This paper conducts a numerical analysis on the external surface cracked steel pipes reinforced with Composite Repair System. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) model is developed to calculate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of the surface crack, and the crack growth process is evaluated by the Paris’ law. The effect of FRP-to-steel...

Magnets for High Energy Physics applications built to date are generally superconducting magnets, which operate at cryogenic temperatures. The reliability and safety of the applications are entirely dependent on good design which in turn rely heavily on predictable materials performance. Where at these low temperatures the fracture toughness is...

Industry design standards such as BS 7910 deployed some empirical formulas for the prediction of stress intensity factor (SIF) based on simulation results from traditional finite element method (FEM). However, such FEM simulation occasionally failed to convince people due to the large discrepancies compared with engineering practice. As a...

Cracks are one of the main problems that plague road workers. A correct understanding of the internal crack propagation mechanism of asphalt pavement will help road workers evaluate the road’s working status more comprehensively and make more reasonable decisions in design, construction, and maintenance work. This paper established a three...

Redistribution of residual stress during crack growth in butt welded joint of Al5083-H111 was studied. Furthermore, the effect of post weld heat treatment and removing the weld reinforcements on fatigue crack growth rate was investigated. Three dimensional simulations of welding process and fatigue crack growth were conducted. It was shown...

In this paper, we analyse the surface crack growth in the Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) reinforced steel plates subjected to tension by means of the finite element (FE) method. Following the experimental study, a three-dimensional FE model is developed to evaluate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of the surface crack, and the crack growth...

Numerical study on crack propagation are of great importance for structure design and assessment. In this contribution, the floating node method (FNM) is combined with the symplectic analytical singular element (SASE) to form a new crack-tip element. The four node quadrilateral crack-tip element contains a SASE for the crack tip area to...

In this paper, Composite Repair System (CRS) is applied to repair the circumferential internal surface cracked steel pipes subjected to bending. The Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) is quantitatively analysed by means of numerical simulations, and the crack growth rate is predicted by using the Paris’ law. First, the three-dimensional finite...

In general, a finite width correction to stress intensity factor (SIF) is required in the fatigue crack growth. The finite width correction factor can be explained physically from the energy point of view. It is assumed that the finite width correction factor primarily constitutes an energy correction factor, i.e. it corrects the applied load...

To investigate the damage tolerance of a flexible tsunami barrier, the intralaminar fracture toughness of a plain weave cloth, consisting of Dyneema© fibers and a plastomer resin, has been investigated.<br/>Fracture toughness tests have been performed on center cracked tensile specimens, with varying sizes and initial crack ratios, under quasi...

In the context of the prevalence of thin-walled metallic aerospace structures, the added resistance to crack propagation offered by a built-up structure is desirable from a damage tolerance standpoint. The analysis of failure in such structures, however, is limited by the lack of crack opening solutions. This paper develops analytical models...

Fatigue is one of the major challenges of offshore rigid pipes. The surface crack is the main manifestation. Fatigue cracks are evolved from surface cracks which are frequently appear in the external surface of rigid pipes. Under fatigue loads, the surface cracks may continue to propagate and finally develop into penetrated cracks, which may...

The Floating Node Method (FNM), first developed for modeling the fracture behavior of laminate composites, is here combined with a domain-based interaction integral approach for the generic fracture modeling of quasi-brittle materials from crack nucleation, propagation to final failure. In this framework, FNM is used to represent the...

The orthotropic steel decks (OSDs) are one of the most widely used bridge components, especially in moveable and long span bridges. Numerous cracks have been detected in this type of deck in existing bridges, mainly in the welded joints. The fatigue performance of the bridge deck dominates its design. Among them, the crack at the rib-to-deck...

This paper proposes an analytical model for predicting the non-symmetric crack growth and accompanying delamination growth in FMLs. The general approach of this model applies Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics, the principle of superposition, and displacement compatibility based on the understanding of deformation behaviour in eccentrically...

Solid round bars with a shoulder fillet are frequently used in engineering structures because it facilitates a smooth transition in thickness. However, the presence of shoulder fillets is currently neglected in the prediction of fatigue crack growth in engineering practice. Since stress concentrating locations like a shoulder fillet can have a...

Fatigue loads and failures in metallic structures are a well-known technical problem. Commonly, the fatigue life of the steel elements is determined by an analytical calculation using S-N curves as design resistance to periodic action. However, the technological improvements in almost all structures continuously stretch the limits of acceptance...
