Failure in imperfect anisotropic materials

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    The fundamental cause of crack growth, namely nucleation and growth of voids, is investigated numerically for a two phase imperfect anisotropic material. A unit cell approach is adopted from which the overall stress strain is evaluated. Failure is observed as a sudden stress drop and depending on the geometrical configuration of the two phases, very different deformation modes of the cell occurs.
