Abstract

This paper discusses the results of a round robin on numerical analysis in elastic-plastic fracture mechanics performed in the framework of the European Group on Fracture. The chosen problem was a CT specimen for which experimental results were available from another EGF round robin. Only the specimen geometry and the material tensile curve were given, all the options of the analysis were free. A total of 43 solutions in plane strain, plane stress and 3D were delivered by 22 participants. Comparisons of the solutions between themselves and with the experimental results are made and the reasons for the scatter are discussed.
