In this video we look at a basic 2d progressive damage/delamination example of a bimaterial strip. This uses VCCT based crack growth and critical energy release rates to predict the crack growth at an interface.

A key improvement in ANSYS R19 is the S.M.A.R.T fracture capabilities. This can predict the growth of a crack in a 3d solid without the need to define the crack path. In this video we go through the process of setting up a crack growth simulation in 3d and predict the crack growth due to both static loading and fatigue.

Cracks and similar flaws occur in many components for many different reasons. For example, a structure may experience significant fatigue effects, the material may be inherently defective, cracks may be introduced during the manufacturing stage, or cracks may appear later as a result of environmental conditions. Ansys Mechanical Fracture Mechanics analysis capabilitiesallow you to predict crack criticality and crack growth accurately and efficiently in a virtual environment, giving you the information you need to make better engineering decisions. This course covers the use of Ansys Mechanical to perform Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics and includes several hands-on workshops.

You can model the crack as a mathematically sharp one. You will need to use symmetry criterions if you want to generate a whole model. You can probably go through Prof. Phan's (Univ. of Southern Alabama) Ansys Tutorials to get a fair idea of what you need to do.

you wanna simulate the 2D crack in ANSYS, well if you are interested in crack propagation then you need to model the crack in pre domain and then find the stress intensity factor K-I, K-II, K-III, at the crack tip to evaluate the propagation of crack, well you can use the beam or plane element, rather you can also use the shell element, but one thing you need to modelled the singular element at the crack tip as well as the co-ordinate system to read the result in the local domain.

Hi, I am doing similar project on plates. I did analysis for static loading ( pure tension). Now I want do the same analysis with cyclic loading. Could you please tell how to apply fatigue load in a ansys?

Each learning module below contains a step-by-step tutorial that shows details of how to solve a selected problem using ANSYS, a popular tool for finite-element analysis (FEA). The tutorial topics are drawn from Cornell University courses, the Prantil et al textbook, student/research projects etc. If a tutorial is from a course, the relevant course number is indicated below. All tutorials have a common structure and use the same high-level steps starting with Pre-Analysis and ending with Verification and Validation . Pre-Analysis includes hand calculations to predict expected results while Verification and Validation can be thought of as a formal process for checking computer results. Both these steps are extremely important in practice though often overlooked. The pedagogical philosophy behind these modules is discussed in this article from the ANSYS Advantage magazine.

The following ANSYS tutorials focus on the interpretation and verification of FEA results (rather than on obtaining an FEA solution from scratch). The ANSYS solution files are provided as a download. We read the solution into ANSYS Mechanical and then move directly to reviewing the results critically. We are particularly interested in the comparison of FEA results with hand calculations.

This work compares the fatigue crack growth under constant amplitude load between two softwares, ANSYS Mechanical R19.2 and FRANC2D/L, as an alternative tool for modeling fatigue crack growth problems in mixed-mode loads. Four different configurations of the modified compact tension were simulated in both softwares. The crack growth trajectory, SIFs, stresses distribution, and fatigue life cycles were predicted using both softwares, and the outcome from other researchers validated the results.

Fatigue assessment of materials can be mostly illustrated by three approaches: the fracture mechanics method proposed by Paris and Erdogan [37], the method of strain-life independently obtained by Coffin [38], and the stress-life method proposed by Wöhler [39]. The first method was employed (in the present work) in estimating fatigue life, and the crack tip was characterized independently by the SIFs.

The Cornell Fracture Mechanics Group at Cornell University developed the free two-dimensional fracture analysis software FRANC2D/L, which was funded by the US National Science Foundation, NASA, the US Navy, and other agencies [19]. The FRANC2D/L analysis is carried out in two stages, with CASCA which is used as a mesh generator with different types of mesh and associated with FRANC2D/L. In the second part, the boundary constraints, problem characteristics, stress computation, input crack singularity, crack growth, and problem outcomes were determined [48, 49]. SIFs were computed using three approaches in FRANC2D/L: method of displacement correlation, method of modified crack closure integral, and method of J-integral. The crack orientation was estimated via maximum circumferential stress criterion, while fatigue crack growth rate was calculated based on Paris law equation with the same procedure used in ANSYS as represented in equations (1) and (2), respectively. The step-by-step procedure of the FRANCD2D/L software is shown in Figure 2.

ANSYS Mechanical allows the analysis of thin and thick composites using shell or 3-D solid elements. Intralaminar and interlaminar failure can be investigated using failure criteria including Tsai-Wu, Hashin, LaRC, Puck 2-Dand 3-D. Failure analysis capabilities include the cohesive zone models (CZM)and the virtual crack closure technique (VCCT) that can be used to analyse debonding, delamination, and crack propagation.

A method to detect a crack in a beam is presented. The crack is not modeled as a massless rotational spring, and the forward problem is solved for the natural frequencies using the boundary element method. The inverse problem is solved iteratively for the crack location and the crack size by the Newton-Raphson method. The present crack identification procedure is applied to the simulation cases which use the experimentally measured natural frequencies as inputs, and the detected crack parameters are in good agreements with the actual ones. The present method enables one to detect a crack in a beam without the help of the massless rotational spring model. 2b1af7f3a8
