Abstract

The criterion of maximum principle stress (cremax criterion) at the crack tip is known as one of the most prominent and convenient rule for estimating the direction of brittle crack propagation. Therefore, in simulating the brit- tle crack propagation, the step-by-step crack propagation scheme combined with Keywords
