    Abstract

    The boundary collocation method was used to generate Mode I stress intensity and crack mouth opening displacement coefficients for externally radially (through-the-thickness) cracked ring segments subjected to three-point radial loading. Numerical results were obtained for ring segment outer-to-inner radius ratios (Ro/Ri) ranging from 1.10 to 2.50 and crack length to segment width ratios (a/W) ranging from 0.1 to 0.8. Stress intensity and crack mouth displacement coefficients were found to depend on the ratios Ro/Ri and a/W as well as the included angle between the directions of the reaction forces.
