Abstract

In this manuscript, the authors aimed to demonstrate the influences of influential parameters in mixed-mode crack propagation phenomenon. The authors attempted to cover almost all surrounding issues of this subject as the authors know simulating of propagating cracks as internal strong discontinuity is a complicated issue.Design/methodology/approachIn this manuscript, the authors demonstrated the influences of influential parameters in mixed-mode crack propagation phenomenon.
