Antiplane shear field for a class of hyperelastic incompressible brittle material: Analytical and numerical approaches

Claude Stolz and Andres Parrilla Gomez

Vol. 10 (2015), No. 3, 395–410
DOI: 10.2140/jomms.2015.10.395
Abstract

This paper reconsiders the problem of determining the elastostatics fields near the tip of a crack in a body deformed by an antiplane shear for a class of incompressible, homogeneous, isotropic materials. The study is generalized to the formation of a quasicrack under the same conditions of loading for brittle material that cannot support any further loading when a critical strength is reached. The crack is then replaced by a totally damaged zone where the stress is identically zero. The shape of the boundary between the damaged and undamaged body is found analytically. A numerical approach is proposed to address the problem for more general constitutive law. The analytical solution is recovered by a process of shape optimization.
