Dynamic fracture in solids has attracted a lot cognizance for over a century from engineers in addition to physicists due either to its technological curiosity and to inherent medical interest. quickly utilized so much are encountered in a few technical purposes. every now and then such so much could be utilized intentionally, as for instance in difficulties of blasting, mining, and comminution or fragmentation; in different situations, such dynamic lots may come up from unintended stipulations. whatever the foundation of the swift loading, it will be important to appreciate the mechanisms and mechanics of fracture lower than dynamic loading stipulations so one can layout appropriate methods for assessing the susceptibility to fracture. particularly except its repercussions within the quarter of structural integrity, primary medical interest has endured to play a wide position in engendering curiosity in dynamic fracture difficulties

This is a cubic equation for kR2 ; and depends only on the Poisson’s ratio. The roots of this equation indicate the propagation speed of the surface wave assumed in Eq. 46. Physically meaningful solutions to Eq. 51 must be in the range 0 , kR , 1: For Poisson’s ratio in the range of 0 , n , 0:5; at least one real solution exists. This solution corresponds to the Rayleigh surface wave. 1 lists the values of Rayleigh wave speed for selected materials. Eqs. 49 indicate that the Rayleigh wave travels along the surface in the x1 direction, and experiences an exponential decay along the x2 direction.

The dotted lines indicate shear waves. 29 Dynamic Crack Tip Fields Is IIs IIIs fab ðuÞ; fab ðuÞ and fab ðuÞ are the angular variation of the crack tip stress ﬁeld and are given by Is ðuÞ ¼ cos 12 u½1 2 sin 12 u sin 32 u f11 Is ðuÞ ¼ cos 12 u½1 þ sin 12 u sin 32 u f22 Is f12 ð uÞ ð3:3Þ ¼ cos u sin u cos u 1 2 1 2 3 2 IIs f11 ðuÞ ¼ 2sin 12 u½2 þ cos 12 u cos 32 u IIs ðuÞ ¼ cos 12 u sin 12 u cos 32 u f22 IIs f12 ð uÞ ð3:4Þ ¼ cos 12 u½1 2 sin 12 u sin 32 u IIIs ðuÞ ¼ 2sin 12 u f31 ð3:5Þ IIIs f32 ðuÞ ¼ cos 12 u Since we have suppressed the possibility that the crack may extend, the problem can be solved by standard methods for mixed boundary value problems.

While this decoupling makes the problem amenable to analysis, the restriction of rectilinear crack extension is so severe that it is generally appropriate only in situations where the applied load has a mode I symmetry or the crack is trapped by a weak plane in layered media. In this manner, a set of dynamically admissible solutions is obtained; from this set, the correct solution must be selected by imposing the energy balance equation, with suitable assumptions regarding the dissipation to make the problem manageable.
