Prediction of crack growth direction under plane stress for mixed-mode I and II loading

Wasiluk , Krzysztof Gołoś

Abstract

The estimation of the plastic zone geometry ahead of a crack is fundamental to the evaluation of crack growth. Presented here is an analytical investigation for predicting crack growth direction for mixed-mode I and II loading under plane stress conditions. It is proposed that under complex loading the crack will extend in the direction where the radius of the plastic zone attains a minimum value. There is good agreement between the predicted results which are computed on the basis of this criterion and experimental data published in the literature.
