- Zencrack generates 3D finite element
models of cracked components. The resulting mesh is submitted for analysis
to ABAQUS (qv) ANSYS (qv)
or MARC (qv).
Energy release rates and stress intensity factors are calculated.
Crack growth in 3D can be automatically calculated, and adaptive techniques
are used to regenerate the model to simulate growing cracks.
- Information is given on the Zencrack support page.
- A description of the software is available on
