A new computational method based on the J(k)-integral is put forward for the purpose of conducting fracture analysis of orthotropic materials subjected to hygrothermal stresses. By utilizing the constitutive relations of plane orthotropic hygrothermoelasticity, an alternative expression for the J(k)-integral is derived to replace the general limit definition. A numerical procedure is developed and integrated into a finite element analysis software to implement the proposed form of the J(k)-integral. Temperature and specific moisture concentration fields, which are required in fracture calculations, are also computed through finite element analysis. Numerical results are generated by considering an embedded crack in a polymer matrix fibrous composite laminate, that is subjected to steady-state hygrothermal loading. Comparisons of the mixed-mode stress intensity factors computed by the J(k)-integral based method to those evaluated via the displacement correlation technique demonstrate that, the proposed form of the J(k)-integral is domain independent and leads to numerical results of high accuracy. Presented parametric analyses illustrate the influences of the fiber volume fraction and the crack location on the modes I and II stress intensity factors, the energy release rate, and the T-stress.

Mixed-mode fracture analysis of functionally graded materials under thermal stresses: A new approach using J(k)-integral
Dağ, Serkan (Informa UK Limited, 2007-03-01)
A new computational method based on the J(k)-integral is developed in order to calculate crack tip parameters for functionally graded materials (FGMs) that are subjected to mixed-mode thermal loading. By using the constitutive relations of plane thermoelasticity, J(k)-integral is modified and reduced to a domain independent form that contains area and line integrals. Temperature fields in FGMs and the components of the J(k)-integral are computed by means of the finite element method. In both thermal and mec...

Dağ, Serkan (2006-12-01)
A new computational method based on the equivalent domain integral (EDI) is developed for mode I fracture analysis of orthotropic functionally graded materials (FGMs) subjected to thermal stresses. By using the constitutive relations of plane orthotropic thermoelasticity, generalized definition of the J-integral is converted to an equivalent domain integral to calculate the thermal stress intensity factor.

Learning customized and optimized lists of rules with mathematical programming
Rudin, Cynthia; Ertekin Bolelli, Şeyda (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-12-01)
We introduce a mathematical programming approach to building rule lists, which are a type of interpretable, nonlinear, and logical machine learning classifier involving IF-THEN rules. Unlike traditional decision tree algorithms like CART and C5.0, this method does not use greedy splitting and pruning. Instead, it aims to fully optimize a combination of accuracy and sparsity, obeying user-defined constraints. This method is useful for producing non-black-box predictive models, and has the benefit of a clear ...
