Analysis of a cracked bar under a tensile load in a corrosive environment
Yohann Miglis, Isaac Elishakoff and Francisco Presuel-Moreno

 
Abstract     [Full Text]
    This brief study aims at providing a model to predict the time of service of a cracked bar in corrosive environment, in view of both the fracture mechanics and elastic failure criteria. Dolinskii\'s assumption on the relationship between stress and the corrosion rate is adopted. It is superimposed with fracture mechanics consideration. A comparison between the time of service of a cracked bar and that of a uniform bar is provided.
 
Key Words
    crack; corrosion; Dolinsky\'s relationship
