Abstract

This paper presents ductile fracture simulation using the GTN (Gurson-Tvergaard-Needleman) model of through-wall cracked STPT410 carbon steel pipe test under pure bending. Three issues related to practical application are addressed; (i) how to determine the parameters in the GTN model from fracture toughness data, (ii) how to incorporate the element-size effect to the GTN model and (iii) the effect of the crack-tip mesh design on determination of the GTN model parameters. It is found that determined values of the parameters depend on the crack-tip mesh design and the finite element size used in simulation. The split of the crack tip element into two makes parameter determination easier and gives better simulation results, but is difficult to apply to three-dimensional surface crack problems.
