This report provides a summary of the ElasticPlastic Finite Element Alternating Method (EPFEAM), the T -integral fracture mechanics parameter, and the use of both tools to predict the residual strength of aircraft panels with multiple-site damage. Because this report is meant to be self-contained and each of the three subjects is a considerable research… CONTINUE READING
