    Yasunori Yusa1, Shinobu Yoshimura1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.91, No.6, pp. 445-461, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2013.091.445

    Abstract For large-scale fracture mechanics simulation, a partitioned iterative coupling method is investigated. In this method, an analysis model is decomposed into two domains, which are analyzed separately. A crack is introduced in one small domain, whereas the other large domain is a simple elastic body. Problems concerning fracture mechanics can be treated only in the small domain. In order to satisfy both geometric compatibility and equilibrium on the domain boundary, the two domains are analyzed repeatedly using an iterative solution technique. A benchmark analysis was performed in order to validate the method and evaluate its More >
