Numerical Stress Intensity Factor in Polymer Structures

Rhanim Hassan, R. EL Haimer, Y. Tounsi, H. Rhanim, A. Nassim


The purpose of this study was to determine the SIF stress intensity factor by numerical modeling of a structure containing a hole playing the role of  a discontinuity " crack " subjected to a tensile load by the J- integral approach . The energy release rate was defined by modeling the crack by a notch and a double notch starting from the hole. The results were validated experimentally by testing a transparent material using the photoelasticity technology.
