Join us for this upcoming lunch & learn event featuring Fracture Mechanics & Fatigue!

This session is for engineers wishing to use ANSYS Mechanical to analyze the crack initiation and crack propagation behavior. This event covers information on the Fracture Mechanics theory as well as numerical modeling. It will also review the fundamentals of fracture mechanics; history, derivation of mathematical expressions for stress intensity factors; 2D versus 3D, crack tip stress field, three modes of fracture, maximum principal stress criterion, crack initiation and crack propagation, strain energy density theorem, J-Integral, mixed mode cracking, XFEM method, cohesive zone modeling, implementation of crack modeling in ANSYS Workbench, and fatigue crack growth.
