AN EPFM CRACK GROWTH ANALYSIS OF A 3PB SPECIMEN IN 2D AND 3D
A FEM crack growth analysis of a 3PB specimen under large scale yielding is presented. Several FE models are used both in 2D and 3D. Crack growth is simulated by releasing the nodes of the crack tip elements (2D) and by shifting the nodal positions at the crack front (3D). The experimental load deflection curve is used as input to the analyzes. The obtained J-integral vs displacement curves are compared with the experimental results.
