Abstract

A system for crack propagation analysis based on the finite element method is shown. The system is easily applied to the investigation of crack propagation behavior due to fatigue in arbitrary structural members of, for example, steel bridges. Moreover, the user can estimate the residual life of the structure with respect to the fatigue-crack. This paper also includes new mesh generation methods for this purpose, and several numerical examples show the efficiency of the mesh generation and the analysis system.
