3/18/2002, Monday Energy Approach to Fracture

2
Double Cantilever Beam (DCB) If the crack extends by an amount da, the necessary additional surface energy is obtained from the work done by the external body forces Pdu and the release of strain energy dW. W is the strain energy of DCB

3
Body Stiffness M Crack extension would result in a decrease of plate stiffness

4
Energy Release Rate

5
Force Deflection Relation From Mechanics of Materials, Elementary simple beam problem,

6
