The extended finite element method in thermoelastic fracture mechanics. (English) Zbl 1195.74170
Summary: The extended finite element method (XFEM) is applied to the simulation of thermally stressed, cracked solids. Both thermal and mechanical fields are enriched in the XFEM way in order to represent discontinuous temperature, heat flux, displacement, and traction across the crack surface, as well as singular heat flux and stress at the crack front. Consequently, the cracked thermomechanical problem may be solved on a mesh that is independent of the crack. Either adiabatic or isothermal condition is considered on the crack surface. In the second case, the temperature field is enriched such that it is continuous across the crack but with a discontinuous derivative and the temperature is enforced to the prescribed value by a penalty method. The stress intensity factors are extracted from the XFEM solution by an interaction integral in domain form with no crack face integration. The method is illustrated on several numerical examples (including a curvilinear crack, a propagating crack, and a three-dimensional crack) and is compared with existing solutions.
