Crack Propagation in a PVA Dual-Crosslink Hydrogel: Crack Tip Fields Measured using Digital Image Correlation (2019-06)Data contained in plots of the associated paper. Submitted to Mechanics of Materials in June 2019
The stress field near the tip of a plane stress crack in a gel consisting of chemical and physical cross-links (2018-12-17)This data set is part of a study of the time dependent asymptotic stress fields near the tip of a Mode I plane stress crack. The analysis is based on a three-dimensional continuum model which describes the viscoelastic ...
(2016-08)Under torsional loading, circumferentially notched rods of a brittle material will fracture either in a spiral shape or along a nominally flat, but faceted surface. These facets are the result of multiple microcracks ...
(2009-07-30)This book is written for students who want to understand, apply and contribute to the vast and growing field of fracture mechanics. The emphasis is on mechanics models for crack tip fields and energy flows. A brief ...
