Fracture Mechanics

College of Engineering
MECH
"This course covers fracture mechanics and study it's application to failure under static loading as well as consider growth of cracks due to cyclic loading. It covers linear elastic and elasto-plastic models of local stress fields around crack tips, stress intensity factor and strain energy release rate. Mathematical models for dynamic crack extension and fatigue crack growth and computational fracture mechanics are also discussed."
