A numerical model for corrosion pit propagation under mechanical loading is presented. The level set method is used for corrosion front tracking and also enables the domain to be split into a solid and a pit domain. In the pit the diffusion of atoms originating from the dissolution process occurring at the pit front is simulated. The model is...

This study presents calibration and validation of a cohesive extended finite element model for fatigue crack propagation in ductile materials. The approach relies on a separation between plasticity around the crack tip and fatigue crack growth at the crack tip such that the influence of plasticity on fatigue driving forces is predicted. This...

This paper presents the results of an experimental research aimed at assessing the material performance of adobe bricks in compression for a wide range of induced strain rates, from statics to high velocity impact. Adobe connotes a traditional masonry whose bricks are made of sundried soil mixtures possibly reinforced with natural fibres and...

In this study, the impact of a steel spherical projectile on an alumina ceramic is considered. New experimental and numerical results are presented and analysed. Numerical results are obtained using the Finite Element Method and the upgraded viscosity regularized Johnson-Holmquist-2 constitutive model to describe the ceramic material behaviour....

Structures are subjected to cyclic loads that can vary in direction and magnitude, causing constant amplitude mode I simulations to be too simplistic. This study presents a new approach for fatigue crack propagation in ductile materials that can capture mixed-mode loading and overloading. The extended finite element method is used to deal with...

Alumina ceramic is often used in armour systems. This material is known to have a brittle response under tensile loading, while a ductile response is found when sufficiently high pressures are reached. During projectile impact a ceramic material experiences both tensile loading and high pressures, hence fails in both a brittle and ductile way....

A local damage model is proposed for the numerical assessment of the static performance of Adobe masonry components. The model was applied to simulate the experimental behaviour of sundried soil bricks and mud mortar tested in uniaxial compression and bending. Numerical simulations of the model are made mesh objective by means of a rate...

Although many aspects of the fracturing process of concrete are now well understood and successfully simulated with various models, it is still very difficult to properly simulate the different failure mechanisms observed in a concrete structure induced by ballistic impact. In this paper, an enhanced version of the effective-rate-dependent...

The last decade has seen a growing interest in cohesive zone models for fatigue applications. These cohesive zone models often suffer from a lack of generality and applying them typically requires calibrating a large number of model-specific parameters. To improve on these issues a new method has been proposed in this paper based on the Thick...

A combined experimental and numerical investigation is conducted on the anisotropic water diffusion behaviour of unidirectional glass/epoxy composites. Experimental diffusivity values are obtained by immersing thin material slices for each of its planes of orthotropy extracted from a thick composite panel and interphase measurements are...

The development of realistic numerical tools to efficiently model the response of concrete structures subjected to close-in detonations and high velocity impact has been one of the major quests in defense research. Under these loading conditions, quasi-brittle materials undergo a multitude of failure (damage) mechanisms. Dynamic tensile failure ...

A glass-polymer system of a polyurethane elastomeric matrix with a single 3 mm-diameter glass particle was investigated using a split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) setup for revealing the dynamic compressive mechanical response. This study produced the characteristics of the dynamic stress-strain relation and the relations for the rate...

Multiple-particles-polymer systems of a polyurethane elastomeric matrix embedding 25wt.% and 50wt.% 0.5 mm-diameter PMMA particles were investigated using a split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) setup for revealing the dynamic compressive mechanical response. Taking the 25wt.%-particles-polymer system as a reference case, the characteristics of...

The Johnson-Holmquist-2 ceramic model is used for quasi-static indentation simulation. A modification is proposed to an associated plasticity formulation. This allows for a fully implicit solution scheme, where dilatation is used instead of the traditional explicit bulking formulation. Dilatation is shown to have an important influence on ring...

The dynamic mechanical behaviour of a soft polymer material (Clear Flex 75) was studied using a split Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) apparatus. Mechanical properties have been determined at moderate to high strain rates. Real time deformation and fracture were recorded using a high-speed camera. Fracture micrographs were examined to explore the...

The dynamic tensile mechanical response of a soft polymer material (Clear Flex 75) is investigated using a split Hopkinson tension bar (SHTB). Stress-strain relations are derived to reveal the mechanical properties at moderate and high strain rates. These relations appear to be rate dependent. Under static loading, the polymer exhibits an...
