Fracture Mechanics

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.

Fracture Mechanics (461021A), 5 ECTS. Starts: 7.1.2019

Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to know the fracture mechanisms and influence of material properties to them. He/She is also able to solve linear elastic fracture mechanics problems using tablebooks. Moreover the student is able to solve fatigue crack growth problems. The student is able to use finite element method to solve fracture mechanics problems. After the course the student has the basic skills to use fracture mechanics in design.
