Crack paths under mixed mode loading

By J.R. Yates, M. Zanganeh, R.A. Tomlinson, M.W. Brown and F.A. Diaz Garrido

Abstract

Long fatigue cracks that initially experience mixed mode displacements usually change direction in response to cyclic elastic stresses. Eventually the cracks tend to orient themselves into a pure mode I condition, but the path that they take can be complex and chaotic. In this paper we report on recent developments in techniques for tracking the crack path as it grows and evaluating the strength of the mixed mode crack tip stress field
