Abstract

This paper proposes a simple numerical method to simulate plastic behaviours of tensile plates with twin through-wall cracks. The method is based on finite element analysis with a simple damage theory. To validate the proposed method, simulated results are compared with experimental data performed by Japanese researchers. Despite its simplicity, the proposed method well predicts plastic behaviours of tensile plates with twin cracks, including crack coalescence. Predicted maximum loads are overall lower than experimentally- measured ones.
