NUMERICAL COMPUTATION OF STRESS INTENSITY FACTORS OF SUPPORTING AERO STRUCTURES WITH MULTIPLE SITE DAMAGE
Multiple site damage (MSD) represents the simultaneous development of fatigue cracks at multiple sites in the same structural element. It often occurs in longitudinal and circumferential riveted lap joints in wings and fuselages, and can be very serious, because of possible link up of adjacent cracks creating one large crack that can cause catastrophic failure. The prediction of crack-growth rate, residual strength and fatigue life in the presence of MSD, requires accurate calculation of the Stress Intensity Factors (SIFs) at each crack tip. The problem becomes more difficult when crack propagation has to be treated and therefore successive calculations are required. As technology and computer sciences became more available, numerical computational methods had become an indispensable tool for SIFs determination, but they remain a challenging problem in computational fracture mechanics. This presentation embodies an effort to explore and to demonstrate the capacity, performances and difficulties of SIFs determination by usage of some widely available numerical computational methods. The stress intensity factors for several aero structural configurations with MSD were considered by using three different computational methods: finite element method (FEM) with singularity elements, extended finite element method (X-FEM), and the approximate method based on superposition. This talk represents a review of investigations carried out in cooperation with A. Grbovic, N. Vidanovic and A. Sedmak.
Seminar Mehanika mašina i mehanizama - modeli i matematičke metode započeo je sa radom u junu 2018.god. Seminar se održava do dva puta mesečno, utorkom u periodu od 17.00 - 19.00 u Matematičkom institutu SANU.
