Perturbation solutions for non-linear crack problems

  • He Mingyuan


Approximate solutions ofJ integrals under plane loadings (modes I and II combined) and antiplane shear loadings (mode III) are obtained for bodies with central through cracks of power hardening materials, by using a perturbation method. The obtained calculating formula is very simple and a comparison with available results shows that the formula enjoys quite good accuracy and is suitable for engineering uses.
