A Computational Methodology for Modeling Ductile Fracture Chapter uri icon


  • In recent work, the author and co-workers have introduced and developed a new computational ductile fracture methodology. This approach accounts for certain types of initial and induced anisotropy, and has been further refined to account for coupling between void shape and the effects of anisotropy. The effectiveness of the method in capturing the link between microstructure and fracture properties is explored through a three-dimensional finite element analysis of ductile fracture in notched bars.
