Study of the stress intensity factor of preformed V shape fracture tip

  • Wang Cheng-duan


This paper gives the complex stress function of preformed V shape fracture under the blasting load. With Westergaard's method, the stress field and displacement field of preformed V shape fracture tip are derived, and hence its stress intensity factor is obtained. The blasting test result shows that the formulas derived are correct and effective.

Key words
