2-D and 3-D Elastodynamic Contact Problems for Interface Cracks Under Harmonic Loading
Achievements of material science, such as with the new high-tech materials, make it possible to significantly increase the strength and stiffness of designed structures. However, the cost of an unpredictable fracture is always enormously high. Apart from the increased economic costs due to increased safety requirements, it is necessary to remember that in extreme cases the material or structural fracture can put human life at risk. Therefore, the ultimate milestone of modern fracture mechanics is fracture control, which allows the prediction of the construction behavior and the avoidance of sudden collapse.
