Unformatted text preview: F C P A S Fracture and Crack Propagation Analysis System Version 1.0 Software & Tutorial Document May 2010 ©2010 Ali O. Ayhan, Ergun Nart [email protected] , [email protected] FCPAS Tutorial – Version 1.0 1 Tutorial Document for Fracture Analysis with FCPAS Introduction In this tutorial, some basic linear elastic fracture mechanics examples are included that demonstrate usage of FCPAS ( F racture and C rack P ropagation A nalysis S ystem) to solve three- dimensional fracture problems. The generation of models, meshing and application of boundary conditions and loads are done using the commercially available finite element software, ANSYS . Then, a converter program is used to convert the finite element model information, boundary conditions and loads data from ANSYS TM [1] format into FCPAS format. Finally, FCPAS Solver is run to solve the crack problem and determine the stress intensity factors for the problem of interest. The following chart shows the general algorithm and file structure of process (Figure T.1). Figure T.1 General flow of the analysis process.

The problems included in this tutorial are: 1. Two-dimensional mode-I central crack in a large isotropic medium, 2. Mode-I crack in a Compact Tension, C(T) test specimen, 3. Mode-I central crack in a finite-thickness plate. Figure T.2 General algorithm of FCPAS FCPAS’s GUI (Graphical User Interface) allows the user to follows the process in Figure T.3 in an orderly and user-friendly manner. This is the first version of the software and currently linear fracture analysis is available.
