Abstract

Fracture analysis of an isotropic two-dimensional body with a curved crack using the extended isogeometric analysis (XIGA) is investigated. XIGA is a newly developed numerical approach which benefits from the advantages of the isogeometric analysis method and the extended finite element method [1, 2]. It has been successfully applied for analysis of cracked bodies where the straight crack remains straight in the parametric space. In this paper, XIGA is extended for fracture analysis of curved cracks by adopting specific mapping techniques. Sub-traingles and almost polar techniques alongside applying blending function method are employed for integration over elements intersected by the crack. The accuracy of the proposed approach is investigated for a plate with an arc-shaped central crack with different arc angles.
