Restricted access - publisher's policyIn this study a FETI: Finite Element Tearing and Interconnecting  technique is adopted and exploited for the efficient and accurate modeling of softening materials such as concrete and rock. A fie scale analysis in which ...
Open AccessExceptional fracture toughness levels exhibited by WC-Co cemented carbides (hardmetals) are due mainly to toughening derived from plastic stretching of crack-bridging ductile enclaves. This takes place due to the development ...
Open AccessFracture toughness is one the most important parameters for design applications and performance assessment of WC-Co cemented carbides (hardmetals). Different from hardness, fracture toughness is commonly a property more ...
