Angle Crack Embedded in a Plate
Application ID: 90101
This example reproduces a NAFEMS benchmark in which a plate with an angle crack is subjected to tensile loading. The J-integral is calculated and the stress intensity factors for Mode I and Mode II are compared to the benchmark results for several crack angles.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
