Ask the Expert - Calculating Fracture Mechanics Parameters in Mechanical and Mechanical APDL

Fracture mechanics uses concepts from applied mechanics and material science to consider the combined effect of applied stress and cracks/flaws on the structural integrity of Structural. Fracture mechanics based design concepts are widely used in many engineering fields, including nuclear, aerospace, civil, and mechanical. This webinar will explain how the domain integral method, integration integral, and virtual crack closure technique (VCCT) are used to calculate critical fracture mechanics parameters, such as J-integral (J), Stress Intensity (K), and Energy Release Rate (G) in Mechanical and Mechanical APDL ANSYS Release 13.0. It will begin with a short presentation.
