The size-dependent Mode I fracture behaviour of the cracked nanobeam was analysed in terms of crack opening displacement, energy release rate, and stress intensity factor, showing the strong dependency of the above fracture properties on both dimensionless characteristic length and mixture parameter values.

Abstract

The aim of the present work is to extend the two-phase local/nonlocal stress-driven integral model (SDM) to the case of nanobeams with internal discontinuities: as a matter of fact, the original formulation avoids the presence of any discontinuities. Consequently, here, for the first time, the problem of an internal discontinuity is addressed by using a convex combination of both local and nonlocal phases of the model by introducing a mixture parameter. The novel formulation here proposed was validated by considering six case studies involving different uncracked nano-beams by varying the constrains and the loading configurations, and the effect of nonlocality on the displacement field is discussed. Moreover, a centrally-cracked nanobeam, subjected to concentrated forces at the crack half-length, was studied. The size-dependent Mode I fracture behaviour of the cracked nanobeam was analysed in terms of crack opening displacement, energy release rate, and stress intensity factor, showing the strong dependency of the above fracture properties on both dimensionless characteristic length and mixture parameter values.
