Zusammenfassung, Abstract
The paper presents a numerical procedure for the accurate calculation of crack paths in plane structures. The J-integral is used to determine crack tip loading quantities such as stress intensity factors or the energy release rate. Crack paths are predicted applying a modified maximum energy release rate approach accounting for the fracture toughness orthotropy in rolled plates of aluminum alloy Al-7075-T651 where the anisotropy of elastic constants is negligible. Experiments with CT-specimens are carried out to determine the fracture toughnesses in and perpendicular to the rolling direction. The numerically predicted crack paths for differently shaped specimens are in good agreement with those obtained from experiments. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
