This paper investigates the singular plastic fields at crack tips for Tresca and Mohr–Coulomb materials with power law hardening response. The singular values and the corresponding fields were determined over a range of material parameters. For Tresca and Mohr–Coulomb associative materials we verified that the dominant singularity is given by the HRR value. For non-associative Mohr–Coulomb materials we found consistent deviations from the HRR value which increase with the degree of non-associativity. The near-tip stress, strain, displacement and plastic zone profiles are illustrated for few representative cases. For the Tresca solid we found that the singular displacement and strain fields decrease with increasing hardening exponent before becoming undetermined at the limit of the perfect plasticity. For a Mohr–Coulomb material, with moderate pressure sensitive behavior, the strain and displacement fields are restored to values obtained for strong hardening behavior. © 2017

The Influence of Crack-Face Normal and Shear Stress Loading on Hydraulic Fracture-Tip Singular Plastic Fields Papanastasiou, Panos C.; Durban, D. (2018)We investigated the singular plastic fields at the crack tip of a fracture that is loaded with normal and shear loads due to a viscous flow in a hydraulic fracturing. The level of the expected shear load in comparison with ...
