On the fracture toughness of ferroelastic materials

  title={On the fracture toughness of ferroelastic materials},
  author={Chad M. Landis},
The toughness enhancement due to domain switching near a steadily growing crack in a ferroelastic material is analyzed. The constitutive response of the material is taken to be characteristic of a polycrystalline sample assembled from randomly oriented tetragonal single crystal grains. The constitutive law accounts for the strain saturation, asymmetry in tension versus compression, Bauschinger e5ects, reverse switching, and strain reorientation that can occur in these materials due to the non… CONTINUE READING
