Thermal Effects in a Transient Study of Fractureby L. M. Brock, Univ of Kentucky, Lexington, United States,
Abstract: Studies, e.g. Zehnder and Rosakis (1989), indicate that fracture is associated with temperature rises in inelastic zones near the crack edge. To gain more insight into this phenomenon, we examine 2D rapid crack growth in a weakly-coupled thermoelastic solid. A transient study of 2D rapid crack growth in a weakly-coupled thermoelastic solids shows that significant temperature rises occur very near the crack edge.
