Quasistatic evolution problems for material failure due to fatigue

Project description

A rigorous mathematical approach to the problem of fatigue

Unforeseen fractures in materials can have devastating consequences, particularly for large components under large loads such as airplanes, ships, cranes, buildings and bridges. Fracture mechanics is a field of its own, largely within the realm of engineering. Its goal is to better understand the initiation and propagation of cracks in various materials under different loading conditions in order to predict, diagnose and ultimately avoid failure. Mathematical models and descriptions are key to understanding fatigue behaviour; therefore, the EU-funded FatiguEvoPro project is applying a mathematical eye to the problem. The project’s work could not only improve fracture prediction but also result in a new application field within the realm of mathematics.
