    T. Fujimoto1, T. Nishioka2
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 133-138, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.001.133
    Abstract In this study, applicability of various fracture path prediction theories into dynamic elasto visco-plastic fracture is discussed by the moving finite element analyses. Outline of each fracture path theory and numerical method to predict fracture path are explained. Fracture path predictions are demonstrated in the numerical specimen model under mixed mode loading, and numerical results of fracture path prediction are compared. More >

    On Three-dimensional Effects in Propagation of Surface-breaking Cracks

    E. Schnack1, A. Dimitrov2, F.-G. Buchholz3
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 139-146, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.001.139
    Abstract In fracture mechanics, we have to discuss corner and edge singularities for two- and three-dimensional problems in isotropic and layered anisotropic continua. To say something about the behavior of crack propagation starting from corners and edges, we need the information about stress asymptotics in the vicinity of three-dimensional corner points. Thus, in this paper we can study two aspects: the interface crack in layered unisotropic materials with re-entrant corners and surface cracks for the homogeneous isotropic continua. To study the effect of geometrical singularities on the stress intensity factors, we have to define generalized stress intensity factors. We are starting… More >

    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 147-152, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.001.147
    Abstract Several methods are in vogue to understand the process of crack initiation and propagation in ductile materials. In an attempt to achieve a unified understanding of these methods, a large deformation finite element analysis has been carried out. An attempt has been made to understand ductile fracture by numerically determining the ductile fracture toughness by three different methods viz. 1) Load-displacement method 2) Path-integral method 3) Stretch zone width method (SZW). In addition, an attempt has to be made to explore the possibility of using `characteristic distance'(lc) approach for establishing fracture toughness. The present study attempts at achieving an insight… More >

    Reconstruction and Evaluation of 3D Fracture Surface Morphology

    K. Slámečka1, J.Pokluda1, P. Ponížil 2, P. Šandera1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 153-160, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.001.153
    Abstract In the paper a procedure for evaluation of the fracture surface morphology is described in detail. It consists of the stereophotogrammetrical 3D surface reconstruction followed by the Delaunay triangulation of obtained set of surface points. The potential of the procedure is demonstrated using fracture surfaces generated under combined bending-torsion fatigue loading of specimens made from high-strength low-alloy Cr-Al-Mo steel. Fracture profiles extracted from calculated 3D meshes are characterized by the root mean square roughness and the Hurst exponent. As a main result of the analysis the critical portion of the torsion loading component after which the character of the crack… More >

    Crack Closure Effects in Selected Cases with Practical Engineering Impacts

    I. Cerný 1, V. Linhart1
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 161-166, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.001.161
    Abstract Two different cases with the aim to show, how important the crack closure phenomenon can be in reality and can affect eventual crack growth behaviour by an unexpected way are described and discussed in the paper, namely: (i) a favourable effect of fretting oxidation crack closure in air which can disappear in oil environments, typical for many machinery applications and (ii) a favourable effect of crack closure occurring as a results of corrosion products in corrosive environments, which would normally increase crack growth rate by stress corrosion and corrosion fatigue mechanisms.

    Bridge Health Mornitoring using Wireless Sensor Networks

    Byung-wan Jo1, Do-keun Kim2, Sung-keun Song3, Suk-un Kim4
    The International Conference on Computational & Experimental Engineering and Sciences, Vol.1, No.4, pp. 167-172, 2007, DOI:10.3970/icces.2007.001.167
    Abstract Wireless sensor networks bring new challenges to Bridge monitoring. To monitor a bridge, behavior, including vibration and displacement, must be measured to analyze the health of the structure based on measured and collected data. The collected data can be used to compute modal properties of the bridge. A bridge is moved by external forces, including wind, seismic activity, and traffic. So it is very hard reliance of safety through a preexistence method which uses Data Logger. Dynamic behavior of a bridge is difficult to measure because of costs and installation methods. In this paper, a new method, using a U-Smart… More >
