ON AN ESTIMATION OF THE EXPONENT OF THE STRESS SINGULARITY: THREE DIMENSIONAL PROBLEMS AND EFFECT OF RESIDUAL STRESSES ON A CRACK ARRESTED ON THE INTERFACE

pages 415 - 418, full text

The main aim of this paper is an investigation of the crack behavior in the ceramics laminates. Especially, the problem of the estimation of the stress singularity exponent in such a material using different approaches is closely described. Since analytical approach is a suitable tool for two dimensional problems, introducing residual stresses, which can be result of used procedures during composite production, may influence value of the stress singularity exponent. Unfortunately, there is formally no analytical tool available to introduce residual stresses. Moreover, when the three dimensional geometry is investigated, effects of complicated stress distribution in front of the crack tip are of crucial importance for crack behavior. Hence using numerically obtained stress distribution appears to be the only way, how to capture the effect of residual stresses and three dimensional geometry of the crack front. The stress singularity exponent can be directly determined from stress components in front of the crack tip and/or from displacements at faces of the crack. Both can provide good results and give us a solution, which cannot be obtained analytically. In following text the procedure will be described in more detail and shown results obtained on ceramic laminate.
