Dugdale model applied to crack interactions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


It is doubtful that modelling crack interactions problem within the context of elasticity adequately reflects the physical aspects as the failure of brittle material is approached. A model incorporating the inelastic response may be more appropriate. In this paper, a cohesive-zone model is extended for mixed modes of loading and then is applied to crack interaction problems. The results are compared to some existing methods.
