Undervisningsperiod (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

V (each academic year)

Lärandemål (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After the course, the student will be able to:
•    understand the theoretical background of linear and non-linear fracture mechanics.
•    apply the principles of fracture mechanics to solve design problems.
•    determine if crack growth will be stable or unstable.
•    define and discuss the most common fracture mechanisms.

Innehåll (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course will start by introducing the fundamental principles of Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM).  This will cover both the energy balance and stress analysis of cracks as well as the necessary conditions for stable crack growth and small-scale yielding.  Then, these principles will be extended to elastic-plastic fracture mechanics by introducing the J-integral.  Finally, the course will provide an introduction to the fracture mechanisms and testing methods applicable for different materials.
