Mixed mode cracking in layered materials
Publisher Summary This chapter describes the mixed mode cracking in layered materials. There is ample experimental evidence that cracks in brittle, isotropic, homogeneous materials propagate suchExpand
Dynamic Fracture Mechanics
Preface List of symbols 1. Background and overview 2. Basic elastodynamic solutions for a stationary crack 3. Further results for a stationary crack 4. Asymptotic fields near a moving crack tip 5.Expand
Strain gradient plasticity: Theory and experiment
Abstract Dislocation theory is used to invoke a strain gradient theory of rate independent plasticity. Hardening is assumed to result from the accumulation of both randomly stored and geometricallyExpand
Singular behaviour at the end of a tensile crack in a hardening material
Abstract D istributions of stress occurring at the tip of a crack in a tension field are presented for both plane stress and plane strain. A total deformation theory of plasticity, in conjunctionExpand
Metal Foams: A Design Guide
Introduction Making Metal Foams Characterization Methods Properties of Metal Foams Design Analysis for Material Selection Design Formulae for Simple Structures A Constitutive Model for Metal FoamsExpand
The relation between crack growth resistance and fracture process parameters in elastic-plastic solids
CKA~K growth initiation and subsequent resistance is computed for an elastic-plastic solid with an idealized traction separation law specified on the crack plane to characterize the fracture process.Expand
Interface crack between two elastic layers
A semi-infinite interface crack between two infinite isotropic elastic layers under general edge loading conditions is considered. The problem can be solved analytically except for a single realExpand
Modification of the Gurson Model for shear failure
Recent experimental evidence points to limitations in characterizing the critical strain in ductile fracture solely on the basis of stress triaxiality. A second measure of stress state, such as theExpand

A study of steady creep of face centred cubic (f. c. c.) and ionic polycrystals as it relates to single crystal creep behaviour is made by using an upper bound technique and a self-consistent method.Expand
