Abstract
Abstract This paper is concerned with the numerical investigation of fracture mechanics parameters for cracked orthotropic composite structures by using an efficient computational approach. The adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) based on locally refined (LR) B-splines is thus developed. This adaptive XIGA is enhanced by both signed-distance and orthotropic crack-tip enrichment functions to represent strong discontinuity and singularity induced by crack, respectively. In addition, to improve the integration accuracy, the ‘sub-triangle’ and ‘almost polar’ techniques are adopted for the cut and crack tip elements, respectively. For adaptivity, the smoothed stress field is achieved to develop the posteriori error estimator based local refinement, according to the Zienkiewicz–Zhu estimation. Such posteriori error estimator is then used to determine refinement domains, where the local refinement takes place. The proposed approach is applied for fracture analyses of orthotropic composites, in which the stress intensity factors (SIFs) are evaluated using the contour interaction integral technique. The accuracy of the proposed adaptive orthotropic XIGA is validated through a comparison of SIFs obtained from the proposed method and the available reference solutions. Furthermore, numerical results show that the convergence rate of the adaptive local refinement is faster than that of the global refinement approach.

Abstract This paper aims at investigating fracture behavior of single and multiple cracks in two-dimensional solids by an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) based on locally refined (LR) B-splines. The adaptive XIGA is capable of modeling cracks without considering the location of crack faces due to the local enrichment technique based on partition-of-unity concept. The XIGA approximation is locally enriched by Heaviside function and crack tip enrichment functions to capture the disc...

Abstract This paper presents a unified theory of yield and failure criteria for unidirectional polymer-matrix composites (UD PMCs). This interactive unified theory considers the effect of normal stress on the shear strength by introducing a coupling term ( q 3 σ 22 | τ 21 | ). The coefficient q 3 of the coupling term is an empirical value and equals to 0.2. The predictions of the unified theory are well agreeable with present and existing experiments. Furthermore, Tao theory has been improved by...

Abstract The main objective of this paper is to develop a novel multiscale approach for simulating static and stationary dynamic crack problems in two-dimensional elastic solids through an extended isogeometric analysis using the Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS). This multiscale strategy consists of two techniques that the Nitsche’s method is applied for coupling different length-scales meshes on one hand, and on the other hand, a local enrichment technique is taken to describe the cracks ...

Abstract A numerical study of thermal-mechanical crack growth in orthotropic composite materials by the recently developed extended nodal gradient finite element method is presented. The extended four-node consecutive-interpolation quadrilateral element (XCQ4) used in this work is the conventional four-node quadrilateral element, but it is enhanced by additional terms of averaged nodal gradients to smoothen the derivative fields and increase the accuracy of solution, while keeping the same total...

Abstract In this paper, we present an effective computational approach that combines an adaptive extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) method with locally refined (LR) B-splines and level set methods for modeling multiple inclusions in two-dimensional (2D) elasticity problems. The advantage of XIGA is to model inclusions without considering internal inclusion interfaces by additional functions. Multiple level set functions are used to represent the location of inclusion interfaces and to define ...

Abstract We present an effective adaptive analysis procedure in terms of isogeometric analysis (IGA) based on locally refined (LR) B-splines for two-dimensional elasticity problems. One major advantage of the adopted LR B-splines over B-splines and non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) is the local refinement, which makes it highly suitable for adaptive analysis. The Zienkiewicz–Zhu estimation is used on error estimator based local refinement. The local refinement is implemented by the structur...

Abstract In this work, an extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) is used for the analysis of through-thickness crack in a homogeneous and isotropic plate. In isogeometric analysis (IGA), non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) are used as a basis function. The plate kinematics is modelled by Reddy’s higher-order shear deformation theory (HSDT). The C 1 continuity requirement of HSDT can be easily fulfilled by the NURBS basis functions. In order to obtain the plate fracture parameters (moment inten...

Failure of structures and their components is one of major problems in engineering. Studies on mechanical behavior of functionally graded (FG) microplates with defects or cracks by effective numerical methods are rarely reported in literature. In this paper, an effective numerical model is derived based on extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) for assessment of vibration and buckling of FG microplates with cracks. Based on the modified couple stress theory, the non-classical theory of Reissner–M...

Abstract The thermo-elastic analysis of thermally induced crack in functionally graded materials (FGMs) is performed using extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA). For the study, two types of cracks, i.e., adiabatic and isothermal, are considered in the FGM body. The suitable enrichment functions are employed to capture the discontinuity (i.e., displacements and temperature) along the crack face and singular fields around the crack tip. The material property gradation in FGM (composed of aluminum ...

Abstract Strong imposing Dirichlet boundary conditions remain a challenge for eXtended Finite Element Methods (XFEMs) or eXtended Isogeometric Analysis (XIGA) of discontinuous problems. Moreover, the physical meaning of the additional Degrees of Freedom (DOFs) in the displacement expression of XFEMs or XIGA is not clarified. To address these issues, we proposed a new method that combines XIGA and B++ splines for modeling the fracture behaviors of single and multiple cracks in 2D elasticity solid...

Abstract A critical overview of past research on the interaction integral (I-integral) method is presented. The I-integral is the two-state mutual energy release rate decided by a designable auxiliary field and the actual field. Due to the designability of the auxiliary field, the I-integral has been used extensively in extracting the individual stress intensity factors (SIFs) and the T-stress of a crack in single materials or at a bi-material interface. The practical implementation of the I-int...

Abstract Based on low-order elements, a stable node-based smoothed extended finite element method (SNS-XFEM) is proposed for fracture analysis of structures in this study. For the proposed method, the problem domain is discretized using low-order elements, which can be easily generated for structures with complex shapes. The node-based smoothing domains are then generated to perform the strain smoothing technique, which can effectively avoid singular integration. The discontinuity caused by crac...

Abstract This paper is devoted to numerical investigation of holes/voids effects on crack growth in solids using a locally refined (LR) B-splines extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA). We particularly focus our attention on crack-hole interaction analysis. Special enrichment functions captured discontinuity and singularity are used, by which the computational mesh are thus independent of both cracks and holes, eliminating re-meshing when modeling crack growth. Geometries of arbitrary shaped crac...

Abstract Limit analysis, without the complicated elasto-plastic computation, is an efficient method for estimating safety load of engineering structures. This paper develops a novel computational approach by integrating second-order cone programming (SOCP) into adaptive extended isogemetric elements (XIGA) for upper-bound limit analysis of cracked structures. The advantage of XIGA is to model cracks without considering the location of crack faces by introducing enrichment functions. The local re...
