Abstract

In this paper, a versatile body force method for a quarter-infinite solid with a corner crack of arbitrary shape is proposed under two types of pressure: constant and linear. New numerical results are obtained for different corner crack cases. Fatigue crack growth from a corner crack has been analysed successively with the present method. Moreover, the stress intensity factor of a corner crack is proposed in a simple form for an arbitrary shape.
