• Correlation between the pivot node concept and fatigue crack closure 

      Camas, Daniel; Gozalez-Herrera, Antonio; García-Manrique-Ocaña, José Manuel (2018-10-05)
      The study of fatigue crack growth has been commonly done by means of bi-dimensional models and assuming a homogeneous behaviour through the thickness. According to the specimen thickness, a state of plane stress or plane ...
    • Key aspects in 3D fatigue crack closure numerical modelling 

      Camas, Daniel; Gonzalez-Herrera, Antonio; García-Manrique-Ocaña, José Manuel (2018-09-14)
      Since long time, fatigue crack closure has been studied by means of finite element models. Initially by bi-dimensional models and recently, due to the higher computational capabilities, the use of three-dimensional models ...
