Abstract:

The challenges of designing modern aircraft continue to drive the development of more advanced analytical tools often these more advanced analytical tools themselves require development of other enabling technologies such as powerful computers and associated software. The primary historical objective of this project was to develop the theoretical foundation for the development of a continuum-based, general stable crack extension criterion in ductile materials.
