  • Energy domain integral method: - Formulated by Shih et al. (1986): - Generalized definition of the J- integral (nonlinear materials, thermal strain, dynamic effects). - Relatively simple to implement numerically, very efficient. Elements of Theory Finite element (FE) code ABAQUS version 6.5 CF Shih, B. Moran and T. Nakamura, Energy release rate along a three-dimensional crack front in a thermally stressed body, International Journal of Fracture 30 (1986), pp. 79-102 ABAQUS: - suite of powerful engineering simulation programs - based on the finite element method - for simple linear analyses and most challenging nonlinear simulations

  • Abaqus 6.5 : creates input files (.inp) that will be processed by Abaqus standard. products associated with Abaqus: For details see the Getting Started Manual of Abaqus 6.5 can be used for producing/ importing the geometry to be analyzed. is useful to monitor/control the analysis jobs and display the results (Viewer). Abaqus Standard : general-purpose analysis product that can treat a wide range of problems. CAE : interactive, graphical environment allowing models to be created quickly. Optional capabilities (offshore structures, design sensitivity calculations) Abaqus Explicit : intended for modeling brief, transient dynamic events (impact) uses an explicit dynamic finite element formulation.

  • In 2D, under quasistatic conditions, J may be expressed by and, The contour surrounds the crack tip. The limit indicates that shrinks onto the crack tip. For details see the Theory Manual of Abaqus 6.5, section 2.16 n : unit outward normal to q : unit vector in the virtual crack extension direction. w : strain energy density displacement gradient tensor x 1, x 2 Cartesian system Energy Domain Integral : H : Eshelbys elastic energy-momentum tensor (for a non-linear elastic solid) : Cauchy stress tensor

  • With q along x 1 and the field quantities expressed in Cartesian components, i.e. The expression of J (see eq. 6.45) is recovered In indexed form, we obtain Thus, with The previous equation is not suitable for a numerical analysis of J. Transformation into a domain integral

  • Using the divergence theorem, the contour integral is converted into the domain integral Under certain circumstances, H is divergence free, i.e. indicates the path independence of the J-integral. In the general case of thermo-mechanical loading and with body forces and crack face tractions: the J-integral is only defined by the limiting contour or Introducing then the vector, in A Using next the relationship, Contributions due to crack face tractions.

  • - This integral is evaluated using ring elements surrounding the crack tip. - Different contours are created: In Abaqus: First contour (1) = elements directly connected to crack-tip nodes. The second contour (2) are elements sharing nodes with the first, etc 8-node quadratic plane strain element (CPE8) 1 2 Refined mesh Contour (i) Crack nodes outside nodes inside Exception: on midside nodes (if they exist) in the outer ring of elements
