Abstract
Abstract null null In this research, the solution of linear elastic fracture mechanics problems when using spherical Hankel shape functions in the boundary element method is investigated. These shape functions benefit from the advantages of Bessel function fields of the first and second kind in addition to the polynomial ones, which makes them a robust and efficient tool for interpolation. Among the most important features of Hankel shape functions, the infinite piecewise continuity and the utilization of complex space with no influence on the imaginary part of the partition of unity property can be pointed out. The calculation of the stress intensity factors (SIFs) is carried out in five numerical examples so that the accuracy of the present study can be illustrated. Comparisons are made between the results of using spherical Hankel shape functions, the experimental ones, and those obtained by classical BEM with Lagrange shape functions. According to the results of these comparisons, the proposed spherical Hankel shape functions present more accurate and reliable results in comparison with the classic Lagrange ones.

Abstract In this paper, dual boundary element method (DBEM) is combined with interaction integral (I-integral) to evaluate stress intensity factors (SIFs) and T-stress simultaneously for mixed-mode crack analyzing. DBEM is proved to be one of the most efficient boundary element methods (BEM) for solving crack problems with boundary-only discretization, however its current implementation is in lack of efficient methods to evaluate fracture parameters. The available geometrical extrapolation metho...

Abstract In this study, cracked shell-type structures with 3D geometries made of orthotropic materials are considered. Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM) are typically used for analysis of 2D orthotropic plates; however, the available commercial FEM packages like ABAQUS do not offer a solution for cracked orthotropic elements. As a result, authors have developed a programming code in MATLAB software, which is capable of solving 3D orthotropic structures with shell elements. Examples of 2D and...

Abstract This paper presents an improved treatment for those advanced FEMs that use stresses in the crack-tip element for evaluation crack propagation condition. We show that the common treatment of obtaining crack-tip displacements using simple interpolation from the edge of the crack-tip element is inaccurate and is responsible for the jagged jump and unwarping behavior (JJU) frequently reported in literature. In this study we propose a more accurate treatment by introducing an element node wi...

In this paper, spherical Hankel basis functions and Carrera unified formulation (CUF) are utilized for the free vibration analysis of laminated composite plates. The spherical Hankel shape functions are derived from the corresponding radial basis function. These functions have excellent ability to satisfy the first and second kind of Bessel function as well as polynomial function fields which leads to more accurate results. Also, CUF presents an effective formulation to employ any order of Taylo...

Abstract A novel boundary element formulation for two-dimensional fracture mechanics is presented in this work. The formulation is based on the derivation of a supplementary boundary integral equation to be used in combination with the classic displacement boundary integral equation to solve anisotropic fracture mechanics problems via a single-region approach. The formulation is built starting from the observation that the displacement field for an anisotropic domain can be represented as the su...

This paper reformulates a time-discontinuous finite element method (TD-FEM) based on a new class of shape functions, called complex Fourier hereafter, for solving two-dimensional elastodynamic problems. These shape functions, which are derived from their corresponding radial basis functions, have some advantages such as the satisfaction of exponential and trigonometric function fields in complex space as well as the polynomial ones simultaneously, that make them a better choice than classic Lagr...
