Structural dynamics of piping with stable cracks. Some simple models


Journal Article

The effects of cracks on structural response are illustrated through simple analytical models for cracked elastic and rigid-perfectly plastic beams. Such models can capture-essential mechanical phenomena and enable generic problems to be studied in order to identify worst-case scenarios. Stable cracks are shown to alter not only the magnitude of response but also the modes of plastic deformation. The effects of boundary conditions, as well as crack location and size, are shown to be amenable to study via simple models. © 1983.
