1- I have obtained some preliminary results for fracture of Boron carbide sample under dynamic 3-point bending test. To provide a comprehensive comparison with experimental data, more numerical examples are needed. I am carrying out new numerical tests with varying fracture toughness, modulus of rupture (MOR) and also density. I want to figure out how those parameters effect the max. crack propagation speed.
2- I need to write a report for Prof. Hufnagel by June 24th. A draft will be given to Nitin by next Monday June 20th.
You should put some of your typical solution movies for the rest of the group to see, particularly with respect to crack speeds.
Certainly! I just shared the link in slack. The folder includes the crack propagation video, crack band plot and crack speed profile. They are still a preliminary results. So please consider that there might be some error within outcome.
