Abstract

This work proposes a method for evaluating the increments of crack propagation in two-dimensional problems of fracture mechanics. A displacement-crack growth formulation based on the so-called υ-method is introduced for the case of rectilinear elastic crack growth. The formulation can be generalized for simulating crack propagation in ductile materials.
