    Peridynamic Study on Fracture Mode and Crack Propagation Path of a Plate with Multiple Cracks Subjected to Uniaxial Tension

    Zeyuan Zhou, Ming Yu, Xinfeng Wang*, Zaixing Huang

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.3, pp. 2593-2620, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.027384

    Abstract How to simulate fracture mode and crack propagation path in a plate with multiple cracks is an attractive but dicult issue in fracture mechanics. Peridynamics is a recently developed nonlocal continuum formulation that can spontaneously predict the crack nucleation, branch and propagation in materials and structures through a meshfree discrete technique. In this paper, the peridynamic motion equation with boundary traction is improved by simplifying the boundary transfer functions. We calculate the critical cracking load and the fracture angles of the plate with multiple cracks under uniaxial tension. The results are consistent with those predicted by classical fracture mechanics. The… More > Graphic Abstract

    Quantitative Identification of Multiple Cracks in a Rotor Utilizing Wavelet Finite Element Method

    Bing Li1,2, Hongbo Dong1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.84, No.3, pp. 205-228, 2012, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2012.084.205

    Abstract Different from single crack identification method, the number of cracks should be firstly identified, and then the location and depth of each crack can be predicted for multiple cracks identification technology. This paper presents a multiple crack identification algorithm for rotor using wavelet finite element method. Firstly, the changes in natural frequency of a structure with various crack locations and depths are accurately obtained by means of wavelet finite element method; and then the damage coefficient method is used to determine the number and region of cracks. Finally, by finding the points of intersection of three frequency contour lines in… More >

    Vibrations of Cracked Euler-Bernoulli Beams using Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) Method

    U. Andreaus1,3, R.C. Batra2, M. Porfiri2, 3

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.9, No.2, pp. 111-132, 2005, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2005.009.111

    Abstract Structural health monitoring techniques based on vibration data have received increasing attention in recent years. Since the measured modal characteristics and the transient motion of a beam exhibit low sensitivity to damage, numerical techniques for accurately computing vibration characteristics are needed. Here we use a Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin (MLPG) method to analyze vibrations of a beam with multiple cracks. The trial and the test functions are constructed using the Generalized Moving Least Squares (GMLS) approximation. The smoothness of the GMLS basis functions requires the use of special techniques to account for the slope discontinuities at the crack locations. Therefore, a… More >
