Harmonic analysis with a crack?

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello everybody,

                          I am trying to perform a harmonic analysis of a material sample (say a simple 2D plate) with an edge crack in it using 'Ansys R16'. I see that under sinusoidal loading condition, the two crack faces open or close and interpenetrate (after closing which is not possible practically).

          1.  I believe, stiffnesses of the crack faces change during interpenetration and so the results are not credible anymore.

Post-doc application still open in Southampton

There is still time to apply the 5-year post-doctoral position at the University of Southampton. We are looking for a talented young researcher to join a group working on the definition of the next generation of high strain rate tests based on ultra-high speed deformation imaging and inverse identification (PhotoDyn project).
