Fracture toughness analysis of composites

Interface engineering for nanocomposite toughness enhancements

Engineering ceramic/nanocomposite interfaces may lead to the development of ultra-tough ceramic nanocomposites. The novel processing method, as well as micromechanical interpretation of the above result, can be found here:

Fracture toughness analysis of composites


I am doing my thesis on fracture toughness analysis ofcomposite material. Basically my work is to estimate stress intensity factorwhen reinforcement particle is very near to crack tip.  I am using ANSYS for modeling and meshing.

I need help in selection of element type for crack tip,matrix material and reinforcement particle. And how to calculate KIc forcomposite material???


Thank you.
