Abstract

In this study, phenomena of multiple branching of dynamically propagating crack are investigated numerically. The complicated paths of cracks propagating in a material are simulated by moving finite element method based on Delaunay automatic triangulation (MFEM BODAT), which was extended for such problems. For evaluation of fracture parameters for propagating and branching cracks switching method of the path independent dynamic J integral was used. Using these techniques the generation phase simulation of multiple dynamic crack branching was performed. Various dynamic fracture parameters, which are almost impossible to obtain by experimental technique alone, were accurately evaluated.
