FRACTURE MECHANICS IN FUNCTIONALLY GRADED MATERIALS

Posted on by EmilioMtnez

Modelization of crack initiation and growth in functionally graded materials. Computation of fracture parameters and assessment of crack propagation criteria. Development of subroutines to introduce the material property variation at the element level in commercial FE packages (ABAQUS). Study of novel methodologies to numerically reproduce the experimentally characterized elastic gradient.
