Abstract:This work first develops and applies a domain integral method to compute J-integral and stress intensity factor values along crack fronts in FGM configurations under mode-I thermo-mechanical loading. The proposed domain integral formulation accommodates both linear-elastic and deformation-plastic behavior in FGMs. Next discussed is the extension of interaction-integral procedures to compute directly mixed-mode stress intensity factors and T-stresses along planar, curved cracks in FGMs under linear-elastic loading. The investigation addresses effects upon interaction integral procedures imposed by crackfront curvature, applied crack-face tractions and material nonhomogeneity. Additional considerations for T-stress evaluation include the influence of mode mixity and computation of the anti-plane shear component of non-singular stress, T13.
