Effect of constraint on void growth near a blunt crack tip
Yan, Cheng & Mai, Yiu-Wing (1998) Effect of constraint on void growth near a blunt crack tip. International Journal of Fracture, 92(3), pp. 287-304.
The growth of a single cylindrical hole ahead of a blunt crack tip was studied using large deformation finite element analysis in three-point bend specimens with different precrack depth. The effect of small second phase particles was taken into account by incorporating Gurson’s constitutive equation. The effects of strain hardening and the initial distance from the hole to the crack tip were also investigated. The results show that the variation of crack tip opening displacement with load is not sensitive to constraint level. The effects of constraint on the growth of hole and ductile initiation toughness are diminished with decreasing initial distance from the hole to the blunt crack tip.
