Periodic crack problem for a functionally graded half-plane an analytic solution

Kutlu, Ozge
Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat
The plane elasticity problem of a functionally graded semi-infinite plane, containing periodic imbedded or edge cracks perpendicular to the free surface is considered. Cracks are subjected to mode one mechanical or thermal loadings, which are represented by crack surface tractions. Young's modulus, conduction coefficient, coefficient of thermal expansion are taken as exponentially varying functions of the depth coordinate where as Poisson ratio and thermal diffusivity are assumed to be constant. Fourier integrals and Fourier series are used in the formulation which lead to a Cauchy type singular integral equation. The unknown function which is the derivative of crack surface displacement is numerically solved and used in the calculation of stress intensity factors. Limited finite element calculations are done for verification of the results which demonstrate the strong dependence of stress intensity factors on geometric and material parameters.


Plane strain analytical solutions for a functionally graded elastic-plastic pressurized tube
Eraslan, Ahmet Nedim (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-01)
Plane strain analytical solutions to functionally graded elastic and elastic-plastic pressurized tube problems are obtained in the framework of small deformation theory. The modulus of elasticity and the uniaxial yield limit of the tube material are assumed to vary radially according to two parametric parabolic forms. The analytical plastic model is based on Tresca's yield criterion, its associated flow rule and ideally plastic material behaviour. Elastic, partially plastic and fully plastic stress states a...
A new formulation for the analysis of elastic layers bonded to rigid surfaces
Pinarbasi, Seval; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Mengi, Yalcin (Elsevier BV, 2006-07-01)
Elastic layers bonded to rigid surfaces have widely been used in many engineering applications. It is commonly accepted that while the bonded surfaces slightly influence the shear behavior of the layer, they can cause drastic changes on its compressive and bending behavior. Most of the earlier studies on this subject have been based on assumed displacement fields with assumed stress distributions, which usually lead to "average" solutions. These assumptions have somehow hindered the comprehensive study of s...
Coupled thermoviscoplasticity of glassy polymers in the logarithmic strain space based on the free volume theory
Miehe, Christian; Mendez Diez, Joel; Göktepe, Serdar; Schaenzel, Lisa Marie (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-15)
The paper outlines a constitutive model for finite thermo-visco-plastic behavior of amorphous glassy polymers and considers details of its numerical implementation. In contrast to existing kinematical approaches to finite plasticity of glassy polymers, the formulation applies a plastic metric theory based on an additive split of Lagrangian Hencky-type strains into elastic and plastic parts. The analogy between the proposed formulation in the logarithmic strain space and the geometrically linear theory of pl...

In this paper the plane elasticity problem for two bonded half-planes containing a crack perpendicular to the interface is considered. The primary objective of the paper is to study the effect of very steep variations in the material properties near the diffusion plane on the singular behavior of the stresses and stress intensity factors. The two materials are, thus, assumed to have the shear moduli mu(0) and mu(0)exp(beta-x), x = 0 being the diffusion plane. Of particular interest is the examination of ...
Indentation of a cantilever beam or plate
Kadıoğlu, Fevzi Suat (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1995-12-01)
In this paper the general plane problem for a semi-infinite strip fixed at its short end, containing a crack perpendicular to its voundaries is considered. The strip is under the effect of a stamp. By extending the crack to the surfaces, one can reduce the problem to that of c cantilever beam or plate. Integral transform technique is used to provide an exact formulation of this problem, in terms of a system of four singular integral equations one of them being second kind. Stress singularities at the corner...
