Modelling Cracks the Easy Way
In my previous blog, I talked about the advantages of automatic re-meshing in the analysis of rubbers in improving accuracy and stability of a simulation. One advanced application of this capability that was not touched upon was in the field of crack propagation.
In many industries, it is sufficient to use your analysis to predict that a crack could initiate and redesign the part to avoid this occurrence.
In others, though it is possible that a crack may be identified from an in-service inspection whereupon it becomes necessary to understand if it will propagate under the loads applied and how quickly so that a replacement can be introduced in a timely manner.
