Abstract:

To predict crack growth and fracture strengths of riveted joints subjected to widespread fatigue damage, accurate stress and fracture analyses of corner and surface cracks at a rivet hole are needed. The results presented in this report focus on the computation of stress-intensity factor solutions for rivet holes with cracks. The stress-intensity factor solutions for surface and corner cracks at countersunk rivet holes in a plate were obtained using the finite-element-alternating technique. A range of crack shapes, crack sizes, and crack locations under remote tension were considered.
