CONCLUDING REMARKS Advancements in computers and highly-refined finite-element models have been used to develop more accurate stress-intensity factors for three-dimensional crack configurations – but more analyses and improved equations are needed over a wide range of loading and crack configuration parameters (such as very shallow and very deep cracks). The Newman-Raju equations have been found to be fairly accurate over a wide range in crack configurations, but the new Fawaz-Andersson finite-element solutions for a corner-crack-at-a-hole under remote tension or bending loads have resulted in more accurate equations. Three-dimensional stress-intensity factor solutions have improved the fatigue-crack growth predictions for complex crack configurations. Three-dimensional stress-intensity factor solutions and local crack-front constraint variations have allowed the correlation of fracture for surface and through cracks under both tension and bending loads.
