Fracture Mechanics

FM 2Fracture mechanics is the field of mechanics concerned with the study of the propagation of cracks in materials. It uses methods of analytical solid mechanics to calculate the driving force on a crack and those of experimental solid mechanics to characterize the material’s resistance to fracture.

Engineering Systems is able to provide services including:

– Evaluation of stress intensity factors

– Calculate stresses

– Provide safety factors

– Ligament calculationsFM 1
