Finite element modeling of dynamic interfacial rupture and sliding Conference Paper uri icon


  • Analyses of fracture and sliding under dynamic loading conditions are discussed. The calculations are carried out within a framework where two constitutive relations are used: a volumetric constitutive relation between stress and strain and a surface constitutive relation that characterizes the fracture and/or frictional behavior of an interface. Attention is confined to two dimensional plane stress or plane strain analyses. Issues that are addressed including limiting rupture and sliding speeds along interfaces and modes of frictional sliding.
