Non-Fourier effect and inertia effect analysis of a strip with an induced crack under thermal shock loading
In this paper, the transient temperature fields and the dynamic stress intensity factors of a thermo-elastic strip containing an inner crack parallel to the heated surface under thermal shock are studied. The Biot number of the crack gap, hyperbolic heat conduction theory and equation of motion are considered to investigate the behavior of the temperature fields around the crack and the stress intensity factors. Fourier transform and Laplace transform are used to reduce this mixed boundary value problem. Numerical methods are used to solved the singular integrate equations. Finally, the numerical results are presented illustrating the influence of Biot number, non-Fourier effect and inertia effect on temperature field and stress intensity factors. It is found that the Biot number strongly affect the uniformity of the temperature field and the magnitude of the stress intensity factors. The stress intensity factors have higher amplitude and an oscillating feature comparing to those obtained under conventional Fourier thermal conduction condition and quasi-static hypothesis, which can help to better understand the crack behaviors of advanced materials under thermal impact loading.
