In this article I will explain what types of experiments are needed in order to calibrate a temperature-dependent material model.
It commonly believed that the stress concentration factor for a plate with a hole in uniaxial tension is 3. This not true!
When performing uniaxial tests, you should consider also recording the transverse strain. This article shows how use the transverse strain data.
Crack driving forces extend the J-integral and allow for analysis of the fracture response of viscoplastic materials under any load history.
This article discusses how to experimentally measure the J-integral using basic tension experiments and specialized specimen geometries.
The J-Integral is the key quantity of Elastic-Plastic Fracture Mechanics (EPFM). This article shows how to derive it from first principles.
