Linear Fracture Mechanics using the Finite Element Method.

  • Presential
  • Structural Analysis
One of the most complex issues for a finite element software user is to respond "Broke?".
There are several types of stresses and reformulations, as well as points of stress concentrations and numerical singularities, which make it difficult to analyze a structure. Even if it has high tensions or cracks, the component will not necessarily be doomed.
The training of Linear Fracture Mechanics using the Finite Element Method has as a priority the exposition of mechanical strength theory, failure modes, crack propagation and the tools ANSYS Mechanical has in mind for such types of analysis.


Face-to-face intensive training with ESSS specialists.


  • Historical background;
  • Definitions and terminology;
  • Theories of Mechanical Resistance;
  • The beginnings of the theories of Irwin and Griffiths;

  • The concept of voltage intensifiers;
  • CTOD and Integral J numerically calculated;
  • The concept "Leak-Before-Break Design";
  • Theories of propagation;
  • The notch problem;
  • Elements of Structural Integrity;
  • Critical distance theory and fatigue.
