Plastic response of cantilevers with stable cracks

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Simple analytical models and experiments are employed to demonstrate the structural response of a cantilever beam with a stable crack subjected to impact loading. The mode of plastic deformation is shown to depend very strongly upon the size and location of the crack; and the permanent damage suffered by a cracked beam is found to be significantly different in magnitude and character from that of a correspondingly-loaded uncracked beam. © ASCE.
