J - Integral and Fracture Time under Thermal Shock Loading 912532

A new path independent J-integral is derived to study the behaviour of the crack under the thermal shock and is calculated by the finite element method. For the validity of J-integral numerical analysis and experiments are undertaken. Summary of the research results is following:
  1. 1.
    J integral is expressed in the form of line integral by using the convolution integral.
  2. 2.
    Under Mode I thermal shock loading, the effect of inertia term on the J-integral value is not negligible for a glass plate but for steel plate.
  3. 3.
    Good agreement of fracture times predicted with the present J integral and measured with thermocouple is obtained for glass plate under Mode I thermal shock.
