Abstract
The center-loaded beam with an eccentric notch is a simple test setup for studying non-planar fracture, which is a common cracking mode in structural elements. This work presents a methodology for obtaining the relations between the energy release rate and crack extension for this geometry, considering two different notch eccentricities. The finite element analysis is based on linear elastic fracture mechanics and the method of virtual crack extension, and can be applied to other geometries and ...
