Dynamic steady-state analysis of crack propagation in rubber-like solids using an extended finite element method
Royal Institute of Technology, (KTH).
2012 (English)In: Computational Mechanics, ISSN 0178-7675, E-ISSN 1432-0924, Vol. 49, no 1, 73-86 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In the present study, a computational framework for studying high-speed crack growth in rubber-like solids under conditions of plane stress and steady-state is proposed. Effects of inertia, viscoelasticity and finite strains are included. The main purpose of the study is to examine the contribution of viscoelastic dissipation to the total work of fracture required to propagate a crack in a rubber-like solid. The computational framework builds upon a previous work by the present author (Kroon in Int J Fract 169:49-60, ). The model was fully able to predict experimental results in terms of the local surface energy at the crack tip and the total energy release rate at different crack speeds. The predicted distributions of stress and dissipation around the propagating crack tip are presented. The predicted crack tip profiles also agree qualitatively with experimental findings.
