Abstract By mapping circles in two-dimensional planes to three-dimensional intersection curves between tubular members, a complicated three-dimensional mesh generating procedure for tubular joints is changed to a procedure similar to a two-dimensional case. More detailed modeling of welds and cracks can be included to analyze the fracture behavior of cracked tubular joints. Different types of crack tip models are discussed and a four-tip crack model is introduced to model crack propagation… CONTINUE READING
