Course Information & Grading • Prerequisite: BE/IDE 110 Mechanics of Materials • Text: “Fracture Mechanics” byT. L. Anderson, CRC Press • Grading: • 3 in-class, closed-book tests 70% • Assignments & Projects 20% Follow up course - Fall 2006 ME 436 Advanced Fracture Mechanics
Could a machine operate safely with cracks? • All man made structures contain flaws or defects or cracks! • The question is, could we design structures so that they operate safely in the presence of known or unknown flaws? • Based on mechanics of materials approach, we cannot.
Mechanics of Materials Approach to Design Yield Strength Applied Stress • Design stress ≤ Yield Strength • sd = sYS • MoM Approach assumes that materials and structures are “defect free”. • Given two parameters, Applied Stress (loading) & Strength (material property)
Fracture Mechanics Approach to Design • Fracture mechanics approach assumes that “all” materials and structures contain inherent “flaws/cracks” so failure occurs well below the static strength. • Three parameters appear in the fracture mechanics design methodology: Applied Stress (loading), Fracture Toughness (material property) and Flaw size (quality control).
Fracture Mechanics Approach to Design s d Applied Stress NDT/ NDI Flaw Size a Fracture Toughness K IC
Fracture Mechanics - Objective • Since we cannot build “defect free” structures, we would like to: • Calculate safe load for a known defect • Determine safe defect size for a given load • select a material for a design load & defect • Determine “safe operating life” before a defect grows and results in a catastrophic failure. • Incorporate “damage tolerance” features so as to prevent catastrophic failures if an unexpected failure does occur
Fracture Mechanics - Objective • To learn to deal/live with cracks!!!
