Surface Cracked Cylinder
Application ID: 90211
In this benchmark example, a semi-elliptical crack at the inner surface of a cylinder is studied. The inside of the cylinder and the crack faces are subjected to a pressure load. The J-integral is calculated along the crack front, and the stress intensity factor is then compared with the reference values.
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.
