Numerical study of the temperature and porosity effects on the fracture propagation in a 2D network of elastic bonds

Abstract

This article reports results concerning the fracture of a 2d triangular lattice of atoms linked by springs. The lattice is submitted to controlled strain tests and the influence of both porosity and temperature on failure is investigated. The porosity is found on one hand to decrease the stiffness of the material but on the other hand it increases the… (More)
