Fracture mechanics

Individual course

Course code: 461021A

The aim of the course is to familiarise students with the fracture of materials and with the use of fracture mechanics in design, which has become popular in machine construction and especially in the design of welded steel structures.

Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to

  • know the fracture mechanisms and influence of material properties to them,
  • solve linear elastic fracture mechanics problems using tablebooks,
  • solve fatigue crack growth problems and
  • use finite element method to solve fracture mechanics problems.

After the course, the student has the basic skills to use fracture mechanics in design.
