Edge quality of stress intensity factor

    • Joonseong Lee

      I am calculating the stress intensity factor for internal cracks in a pressure vessel. When calculating the stress intensity factor with the following settings, the quality of the stress intensity factor in the corner area is poor. How can I properly view the stress intensity factor for axial cracks? should?

      Can you try increasing the number of divisions in the circumferential direction?

      Hi Joonseong,

      Can you show a more descriptive picture of the crack mesh? Perhaps at a different angle which shows how the crack is situated on the topology of the body (please show crack mesh). Thanks.
