Fatigue Crack Propagation Benchmark, GDR 3651 FATACRACK

This is a data set for fatigue crack propagation following the benchmark defined within the french research network GDR 3651 FATACRACK funded by CNRS http://www.gdr3651.cnrs.fr

Only two test configurations are reported in this data set. But DIC allows to provide for the analysis not only of the crack tip state ( tip position, crack growth rate and stress intensity factors) but also of the displacement amplitude along the boundary of the analyzed domain. The data set can thus be used to validate fatigue crack growth models.

A detailed description of the data set is given in the pdf file Fatigue_Crack_Propagation_Benchmark.pdf
