Abstract

Poisson's ratio is an important factor for fracture of functionally graded materials (FGMs). It may have significant influence on fracture parameters (e.g. stress intensity factors and T-stress) for a crack in FGMs under mixed-mode loading conditions, while its effect on such parameters is negligible in homogeneous materials. For instance, when tension load is applied in the direction parallel to material gradation, the fracture parameters may show significant influence on the Poisson's ratio. This paper uses a new formulation, so-called non-equilibrium formulation, of the interaction integral method. It also presents a few numerical examples where Poisson's ratio is assumed either constant or linearly varying function, and Young's modulus is assumed to be exponential or hyperbolictangent function.
