Numerical simulation of fatigue crack growth rate and crack retardation due to an overload using a cohesive zone model

Abstract

In this work, a numerical method is pursued based on a cohesive zone model (CZM). The method is aimed at simulating fatigue crack growth as well as crack growth retardation due to an overload. In this cohesive zone model, the degradation of the material strength is represented by a variation of the cohesive traction with respect to separation of the… (More)
