AMML

Motivation

AMML

Motivations

Terminology

AMML

Different CZM Models

- To study the shape effect, three CZMs with different shapes were considered
- Exponential Model
- Trapezoidal Model
- Bilinear Model

- To study the effect of initial rising slope and the tail effect, parameters of trapezoidal model and of bilinear model are varied.

AMML

Exponential model

Following the work of Xu and Needleman (1993), the interface potential is taken as

- (very small scale plasticity),
plastic energy ~ 15% of total dissipation.

- Plasticity induced at the initial stages
- of the crack growth
- plasticity ceases during crack
- propagation.
- Very small error is induced by ignoring
- plasticity.

- plastic work increases
considerably, ~100 to 200% as that of

cohesive energy.

- For large scale plasticity problems the
amount of total dissipation (plastic and

cohesive) is much higher than 8000

- Plastic dissipation very sensitive to
ratio beyond 2 till 3

- Crack cannot propagate beyond

Effect of Shape of CZM on plastic work and cohesive work

Exponential Model

Bilinear Model

Trapezoidal Model

- A set of patch of elements (each having app. 50 elements) were selected in the bounding material.
- The patches are approximately squares (130 ). They are spaced equally from each other.
- Adjoining these patches, patches of cohesive elements are considered to record the cohesive energies.

Local/spatial Energy Distribution

AMML

- The cohesive energy in the patch increases up to point C (corresponding to inset Figure ) after which the crack tip is presumed to advance.
- The energy consumed by the cohesive elements at this stage is approximately 1/7 of the total cohesive energy for the present CZM.
- Once the point C is crossed, the patch of elements fall into the wake region.
- The rate of cohesive zone energy absorption depends on the slope of the curve and the rate at which elastic unloading and plastic dissipation takes place in the adjoining material.
- The curves flattens out once the entire cohesive energy is dissipated within a given zone.
- Similar curves were obtained even for trapezoidal and bilinear models

Variation of Cohesive Energy

The variation of Cohesive Energy in the Wake and Forward region as the crack propagates. The numbers indicate the Cohesive Element Patch numbers Falling Just Below the binding element patches

- Considerable elastic energy is built up till
the peak of curve is reached after

which the crack tip advances.

- After passing C, the cohesive elements near
the crack tip are separated and the elements

in this patch becomes a part of the wake.

- At this stage, the values of normal traction
reduces following the downward slope of

curve following which the stress in the

patch reduces accompanied by reduction in

elastic strain energy.

- The reduction in elastic strain energy is used up in dissipating cohesive energy to those cohesive elements adjoining this patch.
- The initial crack tip is inherently sharp leading to high levels of stress fields due to which higher energy for patch 1
- Crack tip blunts for advancing crack tip leading to a lower levels of stress, resulting in reduced energy level in other patches.

Variation of Elastic Energy in Various Patch of Elements as a Function of Crack Extension. The numbers indicate Patch numbers starting from Initial Crack Tip

Variation of Plastic Work ( )

- plastic energy accumulates considerably along with elastic energy, when the local stresses bounding material exceeds the yield
- After reaching peak point C on curve traction reduces and plastic deformation ceases. Accumulated plastic work is dissipative in nature, it remains constant after debonding.
- The accumulated plastic work decreases up to patch 4 from that of 1 as a consequence of reduction of the initial sharpness of the crack.
- Mechanical work is increased to propagate the crack, during which the does not increase resulting in increased plastic work. That increase in plastic work causes the increase in the stored work in patches 4 and beyond
- Plastic dissipation is significantly higher at the crack initiation
- Small amount of plastic dissipation continues to take place during crack growth.

process in a ductile material

- plastic energy accumulates considerably along with elastic energy, when the local stresses bounding material exceeds the yield
- After reaching peak point D on curve traction reduces and plastic deformation ceases. Accumulated plastic remains constant after debonding.
- Plastic dissipation takes place only at crack initiation.
- No plastic dissipation takes place during crack growth.
- Elastic energy curve repeats its feature even during crack growth

Variation of Elastic & Plastic Work ( )

For trapezoidal model

AMML

Effect of Shape of CZM on plastic work and cohesive work (contd.)

- Both bilinear and trapezoidal models predict considerably less amount of plasticity when compared to exponential models
- Exponential model shows plastic energy is dissipated not only at crack initiation but also during crack growth.
- Both bilinear and trapezoidal models shows plastic dissipation only at crack initiation and during crack growth plastic dissipation does not take place.
- Plastic dissipation decreases with with reduction of initial slope (with increase in dmax1 for trapezoidal model anddmax in case of bilinear model)
- Exponential model shows a slightly higher stress field near the crack tip when compared to that of bilinear and trapezoidal models. This also contributes to increased plasticity in exponential models.

- Tail part of trapezoidal CZM is varied keeping constant at 0.1 and varying from 0.1 to 0.8.
- Plastic dissipation decreases with longer tail in CZM

Effect of Initial slope of CZMs (contd.)

Trapezoidal Model

- Trapezoidal model shows slightly higher initial stiffness when compared to bilinear model
- In both the models stiffness reduces as the initial slope of CZMs are increased.

AMML

- From LEFM (small scale yielding) the crack initiation load obtained by limiting SIF to is 80MPa

AMML

Conclusion

- smax/sy has considerable effect on plasticity in case of exponential model and has little effect in case of trapezoidal and bilinear model
- Shape of CZM has considerable effect of amount of plasticity induced in the bounding material. Exponential model induces higher level of plasticity when compared to trapezoidal and bilinear models.
- Exponential model induces plasticity at both crack initiation and crack propagation: applicable for ductile metals
- Trapezoidal and bilinear models induces plasticity only at crack initiation (even at higher smax/sy ) and not during crack propagation: applicable for brittle or metals with low ductility
- Shape of CZM has considerable effect on the size of plastic zone. Exponential model predict better size of plastic zone than other models.

AMML

Conclusion(contd)

- Initial slope has several effect on fracture process
- By increasing the initial slope (reducing value for dmax1 and dmax) stiffness of CZ elements increases, there by it increases plasticity.
- By decreasing the slope, stiffness of elements reduces and hence plasticity.
- Stiff initial slope induces higher stress field in the bounding material.
- Higher initial slope makes the wake length longer.
- Higher initial slope results in lesser cohesive energy consumptionin the forward region, hence crack initiates at lower load.

- Crown shape (flat in trapezoidal, sharp point in bilinear, curved in exponential model) of CZMs has no significant effect except for trapezoidal model where more number of elements experience constant peak stress, which may favor in plastic dissipation.
- Flat crown also reduces critical displacement for both crack initiation and complete separation

- Tail part of CZM also effects in plasticity growth. When trapezoidal model is used with longer tail amount of plasticity is reduced.
