Hygrothermal Fracture Analysis of Orthotropic Functionally Graded Materials Using J(k)-Integral-Based Methods

Dağ, Serkan
This paper puts forward two different J(k)-integral-based methods, which can be used to perform mixed-mode fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials subjected to hygrothermal stresses. The first method requires the evaluation of both components of J(k)-integral, whereas the second method employs the first component.. 1 and the asymptotic crack tip displacement fields. Plane orthotropic hygrothermoelasticity is the basic theory behind the J(k)-integral formulation, which is carried out by assuming that all material properties are functions of the spatial coordinates. Developed procedures are implemented by means of the finite element method and integrated into a general purpose finite element analysis software. Temperature and specific moisture concentration fields needed in the fracture analyses are also computed through finite element analysis. Each of the developed methods is utilized in conjunction with the superposition technique to calculate the hygrothermal fracture parameters. An inclined crack located in a hygrothermally loaded orthotropic functionally graded layer is examined in parametric analyses. Comparisons of the results generated by the proposed methods do indicate that both methods lead to numerical results of high accuracy and that the developed form of the J(k)-integral is domain independent. Further results are presented so as to illustrate the influences of crack inclination angle, crack length, and crack location upon the modes I and II stress intensity factors.

Energy-based non-local plasticity models for deformation patterning, localization and fracture
Lancioni, Giovanni; Yalçınkaya, Tuncay; Cocks, Alan (The Royal Society, 2015-08-08)
This paper analyses the effect of the form of the plastic energy potential on the (heterogeneous) distribution of the deformation field in a simple setting where the key physical aspects of the phenomenon could easily be extracted. This phenomenon is addressed through two different (rate-dependent and rate-independent) non-local plasticity models, by numerically solving two distinct one-dimensional problems, where the plastic energy potential has different non-convex contributions leading to patterning of t...
Geometric characterizations of existentially closed fields with operators
Pierce, D (Duke University Press, 2004-12-01)
This paper concerns the basic model-theory of fields of arbitrary characteristic with operators. Simplified geometric axioms are given for the model-companion of the theory of fields with a derivation. These axioms generalize to the case of several commuting derivations. Let a D-field be a field with a derivation or a difference-operator, called D. The theory of D-fields is companionable. The existentially closed D-fields can be characterized geometrically without distinguishing the two cases in which D can...
On the Krall-type polynomials on q-quadratic lattices
Alvarez-Nodarse, R.; Adiguzel, R. Sevinik (Elsevier BV, 2011-08-01)
In this paper, we study the Krall-type polynomials on non-uniform lattices. For these polynomials the second order linear difference equation, q-basic series representation and three-term recurrence relations are obtained. In particular, the q-Racah-Krall polynomials obtained via the addition of two mass points to the weight function of the non-standard q-Racah polynomials at the ends of the interval of orthogonality are considered in detail. Some important limit cases are also discussed. (C) 2011 Royal Net...
Homomorphisms from mapping class groups
Harvey, WJ; Korkmaz, Mustafa (Wiley, 2005-04-01)
This paper concerns rigidity of the mapping class groups. It is shown that any homomorphism phi: Mod(g) -> Mod(h) between mapping class groups of closed orientable surfaces with distinct genera g > h is trivial if g >= 3, and has finite cyclic image for all g >= 1. Some implications are drawn for more general homomorphs of these groups.
