Displacement Coefficients Along the Inner Boundaries of Radially Cracked Ring Segments Subject to Forces and Couples



Displacement results of plane boundary collocation analysis are given for various locations on the inner boundaries of radially cracked ring segments (C-shaped specimens) subject to two complementary types of loading. Results are presented for ratios of outer to inner radius Ro/Ri in the range of 1.1 to 2.5 and ratios in the range of 1.1 to 2.5 and ratios a/W in the range 0.1 to 0.8, where a is the crack length for a specimen of wall thickness W. By combination of these results the resultant displacement coefficient Δ or the corresponding influence coefficient E'BV/P can be obtained for any practical load line location of a pinloaded specimen.
