Modeling of mode-I fatigue crack growth in quasibrittle structures under cyclic compression
Abstract A cyclic cohesive zone model is proposed to simulate the mode-I crack growth in quasibrittle structures under compressive fatigue. The constitutive behavior of the cohesive elements isExpand

Size Effect in Fatigue Crack Kinetics of Sandstone
This study presents a comprehensive set of size eff ect experiments on both monotonic strength and fatigue crack kinetics for Berea sandstone. It is observed that for all specimens the Paris-ErdoganExpand
A Probabilistic Crack Band Model for Quasibrittle Fracture
This paper presents a new crack band model (CBM) for probabilistic analysis of quasibrittle fracture. The model is anchored by a probabilistic treatment of damage initiation, localization, andExpand
