This video provides the following in regards to performing Integrity Assessment in ABAQUS CAE using linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM):

– Knowledge and understanding of ABAQUS/CAE environment

– Setting up, solving and post-processing fracture mechanics based analyses

– How to estimate contour integrals in ABAQUS

– Crack stability analyses using LEFM and FEM

– Stress intensity factor calculations in, through thickness crack in infinite material, through thickness crack in a strip of finite width, and on edge crack in a semi-finite material.

It will also answer questions such as,

– Can I accurately predict crack initiation in ABAQUS or ABAQUS CAE?

– How can I be sure if the Contour integrals are calculated correctly?
