Abstract
Abstract In this paper, based on the nodal displacement of the crack surface element, a novel node-scheme method is proposed to model the frictional contact problem in the framework of extended finite element method (XFEM). The paper systematically illustrates the novel node-scheme including the fundamentals of the proposed method, the coupled Coulomb's friction model. The novelty of the proposed method is that the node-scheme method is first introduced into the XFEM, it can consider the stress redistribution in the local part of the crack surface, and it has the advantage of solving the locking phenomenon in the numerical simulation of the frictional contact problem. The numerical results show that the proposed method is accurate and applicable to efficiently solve the frictional contact crack problem.

Abstract By coupling the phantom node method with the mesh cut technique in the framework of the extended finite element method (XFEM), an enhanced XFEM for the propagation of complex branched cracks is proposed. The proposed method aims to solve the complex branched crack problems. Additionally, instead of the constant crack propagation length, a novel crack propagation scheme is introduced into the XFEM, in which the crack propagation length is a variable which is determined by two trial calcu...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to investigate the brittle failure mechanism of rock slopes with non-persistent en-echelon joints using the extended finite element method (XFEM). In the research, a novel geometrical method distinguished from the conventional level set method is proposed to describe the cracks in the XFEM. The numerical form of the J-integral considering the effect of the bode force and the frictional contact force is provided. Moreover, a refined coalescence method is proposed...

This paper presents a general framework for modeling dynamic large deformation contact-impact problems based on the phantom-node extended finite element method. The large sliding penalty contact formulation is presented based on a master-slave approach which is implemented within the phantom-node X-FEM and an explicit central difference scheme is used to model the inertial effects. The method is compared with conventional contact X-FEM; advantages, limitations and implementational aspects are al...

Abstract In this paper, crack propagation and coalescence behaviors in rock specimens containing pre-existing open flaws under uniaxial compression are investigated using the novel conjugated bond-based peridynamics (BB-PD). The novel conjugated BB-PD is an extended BB-PD model, where interacting forces are not only related to normal stretch of bonds, but also related to rotation bond angles of a pair of conjugated bonds. Simple elastic-brittle bond rupture criteria, which are related to the uni...

In this paper, mode I fracture toughness of rock was determined by direct and indirect methods using Particle Flow Code simulation. Direct methods are compaction tension (CT) test and hollow centre cracked quadratic sample (HCCQS). Indirect methods are notched Brazilian disk (NBD) specimen, the semi-circular bend (SCB) specimen, hollow centre cracked disc (HCCD), the single edge-notched round bar in bending (SENRBB) specimen and edge notched disk (END). It was determined that which one of indire...

Abstract In the non-ordinary state-based peridynamics (NOSB-PD), the maximum tensile stress criterion and Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion, which are common stress-based failure criteria in rock mechanics and rock engineering, are applied to distinguish the tensile cracks and shear cracks, respectively. The initiation and propagation and coalescence of one single crack or double cracks in the Brazilian Disk specimens under compressive line loads are investigated using NOSB-PD. The effects of the s...

A simultaneous experimental and numerical study of shear fracture of concrete-like materials is carried out using Brazilian disc specimens with initial double edge cracks and fourpoint bending beam specimens with double edge-notches. The interference effects of two cracks/notches are investigated through varied ligament angles and crack lengths. It is shown that shear fracturing paths change remarkably with the initial ligament angles and crack lengths. The cracked specimens are numerically simu...

Fracturing in rocks results in the formation of an inelastic region surrounding the crack tip called the fracture process zone (FPZ), which is often characterized using the Linear Cohesive Zone Model (LCZM). Various numerical studies have shown that the prediction of the FPZ characteristics is significantly influenced by variability in the input parameters of LCZM, such as crack tip opening displacement and tensile strength. In this study, an integrated approach was used for evaluating the LCZM ...

In this paper, the analytical displacement solution at the point of the application of a concentrated force is derived using elastic mechanics. Then, the concentrated-force asymptotic function is obtained. Next, by introducing the concentrated-force asymptotic functions into finite element analysis, a method of simulating concentrated forces is developed. The proposed method can obtain an accurate stress field without any mesh refinement at the point of the application of a concentrated force. M...

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...
