This paper presents the probabilistic analysis of surface crack in round bars subjected to bending moment using Monte Carlo simulation (MCS). A probabilistic model based on an elastic finite element analysis (FEA) was developed to evaluate the failure probability obtained using a K-estimation method. This method is based on the stress intensity factor (SIF… CONTINUE READING
