Abstract

"The effect of flow localization on plastic flow and fracture due to stress concentrations in type 316 stainless steel was studied by dynamic finite element modeling (FEM) using a computer code (ABAQUS). It was found that the presence of cracks is responsible for a sharp decrease in fracture energy of specimens. the dependence of fracture energy on crack depth is exponential"--Abstract, leaf iii.
