Role of plastic zone in crack growth direction criterion under mixed mode loading
Krzysztof Gołoś , B. Wasiluk
AbstractAn approach to determine the crack growth direction under mixed-mode loading conditions is presented. The plastic zone shape around the crack tip is applied for evaluating angle of crack propagation. It is proposed that a mixed-mode crack will extend along the plastic zone radius with a minimum value. The prediction of the proposed criterion is compared with the experimental data and other models. The agreement is fairly good.
