Abstract:Plasticity Induced Crack Closure (PICC) is an important fatigue phenomenon affecting crack growth under cyclic loading, which makes important to consider it in the design of components. In this paper a parametric study that correlates elastic-plastic material parameters with plasticity induced crack closure (PICC) is presented. Yield stress and hardening coefficient were selected as the material parameters of interest and a sensitivity analysis was developed. The influence of the different parameters on PICC i… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
