A study of the difference in process zones at a crack tip and incomplete contact edge

Abstract:

The aim of this research project was to compare the plastic stress fields in two, apparently very different, geometries and therefore find how they will behave in certain loading scenarios. The simi-larities in plastic zones in an incomplete contact edge problem under conditions of full stick or near full-stick, and a crack tip problem were analysed. In each case the normal load was held constant and the shear load applied in an oscillatory fashion. It is clear that in both cases there wil...
