Brittle failure

Post-doctoral position in Failure of Brittle Materials at National University of Singapore

We anticipate an opening for a post-doctoral fellow position in micromechanics based failure modeling of heterogeneous brittle materials. The focus will be on characterizing the roles of flaw distributions on rate-dependent failure in materials such as concrete. The objective is to develop an understanding of failure processes with the aim of designing high performance brittle materials.

Brittle cracking in brittle materials

Hi there,

 I am trying to simulate a crack opening process in ABAQUS. I start up from a simple model of plate with a notch subjected to tension. I would like to see the crack opening. To model a brittle mnaterial behaviour I have added a brittle cracking with sub-option brttle failure and brittle shear.

Please look at dat file:

*Heading

  *Node

  *Element, type=CPS3

  *Element, type=CPS4R

  *Nset, nset=ASSEMBLY_PART-1-1__PICKEDSET2

  *Elset, elset=ASSEMBLY_PART-1-1__I1
