Análisis Tridimensional de Fracturas con Frente Curvo por el Método de los Elementos Finitos

Ever Barbero, Sergio Idelsohn


In this work, the Finite Element Method is used to calculate the Stress Intensity Factor for three-dimensional cracks.
As an example, a cylinder with an external crack and subjected to internal pressure is shown.
The results obtained are compared with other experimental and numerical results.
