On the connection between mode II and mode III effective thresholds in metals
(Italian Group of Fracture, 2017-07-01)
Closure-free long cracks under the remote mode III loading grow in a more complicated way than those under the remote mode II. For bcc metals, a coplanar in-plane spreading of tongues driven by the local mode II loading ...
Simple criterion for predicting fatigue life under combined bending and torsion loading
(Gruppo Italiano Frattura, 2017-07-01)
Multiaxial fatigue is a challenging problem and, consequently, a number of methods has been developed to aid in design of components and assemblies. Following the complexity of the problem, these approaches are often ...
Crack onset assessment near the sharp material inclusion tip by means of modified maximum tangential stress criterion
(Gruppo Italiano Frattura, 2017-10-01)
In the case of particle reinforced composites, where the particles are in a form of sharp material inclusions, singular stress concentration exists on each tip of each inclusion. This is due to the geometric and material ...
