Abstract

A generalized plastic zone theory based on the Paris' displacement formula is presented to study inelastic fracture properties. This theory is capable of analyzing inelastic fracture characteristics of engineering materials in general. The so-called size effect is predicted for softening materials. A brittleness index is also discussed based on this theory. It is illustrated that the brittleness index may be used to characterize the inelastic fracture properties of the structures.
