Abstract:

Investigation of dynamic fracture of long brittle beams under different loading conditions was effected under ARO Grant DAAG29-78-G-0086. The work has proceeded in two distinct areas - the numerical solution of crack propagation problems using a finite difference code and the analytical solution of some beam fracture problems using several one-dimensional theory formulations.
