This work focuses on a linear elastic analysis by the finite element method and the development of a shape function, commonly known as geometrical correction factor, for the case of semi-elliptical crack in a cylindrical rod. We used the same shape function to analyze the behavior of the rod in the case of a viscoelastic medium materialized by a polymeric material such as HDPE. A linear viscoelastic model calibrated from a relaxation test was developed and implemented in Abaqus. Results showed a relatively good performance, compared with finite element method.
