Two methods of stress intensity factor calculation, Quarter Point Displacement Technique (QPDT) and Displacement Correlation Technique (DCT), were evaluated.
In this paper, the study is limited to Mode I fracture mode (opening mode) and consists of two targets; the first is to find out the typical finite element mesh arrangement in dealing with opening mode of fracture problem and the second is to compare two techniques; Displacement Correlation Technique (DCT) and Quarter Point Displacement Technique (QPDT), for stress intensity factor calculation based on the data generated from the finite element analysis.
The Quarter Point Displacement Technique (QPDT) is slightly different to the Displacement Correlation Technique, the Quarter Point Displacement Technique only uses two adjacent nodes at the crack surface to calculate the stress intensity factors.
