THE COMPOUNDING METHOD OF ESTIMATING STRESS INTENSITY FACTORS FOR CRACKS IN COMPLEX CONFIGURATIONS USING SOLUTIONS FROM SIMPLE CONFIGURATIONS
This Data Item presents a method of estimating values of stress intensity factors for cracks that have developed in complex configurations and are close to several boundaries and/or other cracks. The method, which is simple and easy to apply, entails compounding known stress intensity factor solutions for cracks in simple configurations. Typical applications include components or structural elements such as aircraft structures, pressure vessels, rotating and reciprocating machinery etc., in which cracks may develop under working conditions.
