Abstract
In present endeavour, a methodology has been proposed to predict the edge crack growth of a steel 2D plate by using CASCA (Mesh Creator) and FRANC-2D simulation tools. Stainless steel 316 was considered for this investigation. The edge crack model of 316 stainless steel 2D plate was concerned to locate the path of crack propagation thus assisting to find out the stress intensity factor at mode I and mode II simultaneously. FRANC-2D and CASCA have been programmed by fracture research group of Cornell University. FRANC-2D is finite element based two-dimensional crack propagation simulator and is specifically employed for predicting the crack propagation assuming material having isotropic nature. All the steps to model the 2D plate and to simulate a crack in the plate till its propagation have been covered in a sequential manner in the present paper. Application of FRANC-2D proved useful and time saving for predicting the edge crack propagation behaviour of stainless steel 316. The availability and applicability of such innovative simulation tools encourage research and development of applied fracture mechanics to address crack growth problems in a variety of engineering alloys.
