Transient effects in elastodynamic fracture of graded materials
Date of Original Version
The transient nature of elastodynamic crack growth in graded materials under plane stress and plane strain is considered. Crack tip stress, strain and displacement fields for a transient crack propagating along the direction of property gradation in functionally graded materials (FGMs) are obtained through an asymptotic analysis coupled with displacement potential approach. The influence of transient nature of crack tip on contours of constant maximum shear stress is discussed.
