Abstract
In the present work, elasto-plastic creep crack growth simulations are performed using continuum damage mechanics and extended finite element method. Liu鈥揗urakami creep damage model and explicit time integration scheme are used to evaluate the creep strain and damage variable for various materials at different temperatures. Compact tension and C-shaped tension specimens are selected for the simulation of crack growth analysis. For damage evaluation, both local and nonlocal approaches are employed. The accuracy of the extended finite element method solutions is checked by comparing with experimental results and finite element solutions. These results show that the extended finite element method requires a much coarser mesh to effectively model crack propagation. It is also shown that mesh independent results can be achieved by using nonlocal implementation.

Abstract Realistic 3D finite strain analysis and crack propagation with tetrahedral meshes require mesh refinement/division. In this work, we use edges to drive the division process. Mesh refinement and mesh cutting are edge-based. This approach circumvents the variable mapping procedure adopted with classical mesh adaptation algorithms. The present algorithm makes use of specific problem data (either level sets, damage variables or edge deformation) to perform the division. It is shown that glo...

Abstract In this paper, we present a dual-horizon peridynamics formulation which allows for simulations with dual-horizon with minimal spurious wave reflection. We prove the general dual property for dual-horizon peridynamics, based on which the balance of momentum and angular momentum in PD are naturally satisfied. We also analyze the crack pattern of random point distribution and the multiple materials issue in peridynamics. For selected benchmark problems, we show that DH-PD is less sensitive...

Abstract A stochastic XFEM model based on microstructural observations has been developed to evaluate the tensile strength of NBG-18 nuclear graphite. The nuclear graphite consists of pitch matrix, filler particles, pores and micro-cracks. The numerical simulations are performed at two length scales due to large difference in average size of filler particles and pores. Both deterministic and stochastic approaches have been implemented. The study intends to illustrate the variation in tensile str...

Abstract In the present work, a simple, efficient and accurate Bezier extraction based T-spline XIGA (BEBT-XIGA) has been proposed for the crack simulations. Bezier extraction maps T-spline basis functions over the element in the forms of Bernstein polynomial basis defined over the Bezier element. T-spline basis functions over the element can be written as linear combination of Bernstein polynomials basis. Bezier extraction approach generates an element extraction operator and Bezier element for...

Summary In this paper, we develop a dual-horizon peridynamics (DH-PD) formulation that naturally includes varying horizon sizes and completely solves the 鈥榞host force鈥 issue. Therefore, the concept of dual horizon is introduced to consider the unbalanced interactions between the particles with different horizon sizes. The present formulation fulfills both the balances of linear momentum and angular momentum exactly. Neither the 鈥榩artial stress tensor鈥 nor the 鈥榮lice鈥 technique is needed to ameli...

With the theme of fracture of finite-strain plates and shells based on a phase-field model of crack regularization, we introduce a new staggered algorithm for elastic and elasto-plastic materials. To account for correct fracture behavior in bending, two independent phase-fields are used, corresponding to the lower and upper faces of the shell. This is shown to provide a realistic behavior in bending-dominated problems, here illustrated in classical beam and plate problems. Finite strain behavior...

Abstract In this work, the fatigue life of an interfacial cracked plate is evaluated in the presence of flaws by homogenized extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA). In XIGA, the crack faces are modeled by discontinuous Heaviside jump functions, whereas the singularity in the stress field at the crack tip is modeled by crack tip enrichment functions. Holes and inclusions are modeled by Heaviside function and distance function respectively. The discontinuities are modeled in a selected region near ...

A physics-based multi-scale model that couples viscoelasticity and time-dependent damage evolution for general multidirectional laminates subjected to long-term creep loading is developed. The viscoelastic ply behavior is evaluated using a nonlinear Schapery-type viscoelastic model, while a methodology employed within the framework of classical laminate theory is used to predict the corresponding laminate time-dependent response. The evolution of microscopic ply cracks in multiple plies with dif...

Abstract null null The present paper deals with the development of a mechanical model coupling damage and viscoelasticity for applications related to fracture in bituminous materials and structures. The behavior of these materials is highly thermo-sensitive and depends on the loading rate. Currently, there is no consensus on a modeling approach able to capture their behavior to fracture for a wide range of temperature and loading conditions. This is an objective of the model developed in this pa...

Abstract null null The integral approach to nonlocal ductile damage is developed to enable numerically stable and physically reasonable simulations of crack initiation and propagation in metals. A previously proposed phenomenological model of finite strain plasticity is delocalized through introducing a nonlocal evolution equation for porosity. In the new model, the strain localization is controlled by at least one internal length parameter, thus avoiding unphysical strain localization into a ze...

Abstract In the present work, the extended finite element method (XFEM) is successfully implemented for the thermo-elastic analysis of edge dislocations. Volterra type edge dislocation is modeled using Heaviside and core enrichment functions. The singularity at the dislocation core is captured through infinite domain solution at the core. The Peach-Koehler force is numerically evaluated using the domain form of the J-integral from the XFEM solution of thermo-elastic fields. Two problems i.e. an ...
