Crack trajectory near a weld: Modeling and simulation

M.M. Rashid, Viggo Tvergaard

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


A 2D computational model of ductile fracture, in which arbitrary crack extension through the mesh is accommodated without mesh bias, is used to study ductile fracture near the weld line in welded aluminum plates. Comparisons of the calculated toughness behavior and crack trajectory are made with results found in the literature.
