crack length

crack length

The total length of all cracks measured along the outer edges of window frames and the inner faces of stops or beads around sash; used to determine the air infiltration of the entire window when the air-infiltration rate is known.

We have used spherical coordinates for the mesoscopic variables crack length l [member of] [0, [infinity]] and crack orientation n [member of] [S.sup.2], and we represent the divergence with respect to the mesoscopic variables in spherical coordinates.

where a is the crack length, is based on the cyclic stress intensity factor [DELTA]K, the cyclic J-integral and the C*-integral and, thus, accounts for contributions from elastic, plastic and time-dependent deformations to crack growth [2].
