Part of the Springer Series in Computational Mechanics book series (SSCMECH)

Summary

The rapid crack propagation, crack curving and arrest mechanisms associated with a pressurized, thin-walled ductile steel tubes are used to develop a model of axial rupture of an aircraft fuselage. This model is used to replicate axial crack propagation along a line of multi-site damage (MSD) and crack curving and arrest near a tear strap of an idealized fuselage.
