Arc-shaped debonding crack opened by internal pressure

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper, the problem of a debonding crack at the interface between a circular fiber and an infinite matrix opened by internal pressure is discussed. We concentrated on the effect of contact near the crack tips within the content of linear elastic fracture mechanics. The Muskhelishvili complex variable method is used in this analysis. The frictionless contact crack tip condition is adopted in this study in order to avoid the oscillatory stress singularity at the crack tip as shown in the classical solution. By using the crack opening displacement gradient as the primary variable, the problem is then reduced to two coupled singular integral equations, and the final discretization of the equations employs the method given by Erdogan and Gupta (1972). The comprehensive numerical results of stress fields and the mode II SIF at the closed crack tip will be given in the paper. It is also found from the numerical evidences that the contact length at the crack tip is independent of one of the Dundurs parameters, α.
