• ### Simulating fatigue crack growth in spiral bevel gears

This research project was motivated by the possibility of using fracture mechanics to assist in optimizing gear design. The primary goal is to develop a state-of-the-art capability for modeling three-dimensional crack propagation in gears using boundary element method, finite element method, and fracture mechanics. It is being conducted by a grant between Cornell University and the NASA-Glenn Research Center (formerly known as Lewis Research Center).

• ### Fundamentals of Machine Design P10

This is mainly applicable for short-lived devices where very large overloads may occur at low cycles. Typical examples include the elements of control systems in mechanical devices. A fatigue failure mostly begins at a local discontinuity and when the stress at the discontinuity exceeds elastic limit there is plastic strain. The cyclic plastic strain is responsible for crack propagation and fracture. Experiments have been carried out with reversed loading and

• ### PDE AND LEVEL SETS - Algorithmic Approaches to Static and Motion Imagery

Chapter 1 is for readers who have less background in partial differential equations (PDEs). It contains materials which will be useful in understanding some of the jargon related to the rest of the chapters in this book. A discussion about the classification of the PDEs is presented. Here, we outline the major analytical methods. Later in the chapter, we introduce the most important numerical techniques, namely the finite difference method and finite element method. In the last section we briefly introduce the level set method.

• ### GLASGRlD Technical Manual - Advanced fiber glass technology for asphalt pavement overlays

Many pavements, which are considered to be structurally sound after the construction of an overlay, prematurely exhibit a cracking pattern similar to that which existed in the underlying pavement. This propagation of an existing crack pattern, from discontinuities in the old pavement, into and through a new overlay is known as reflective cracking. Reflective cracks destroy surface continuity, decrease structural strength, and allow water to enter sublayers. Thus, the problems that weakened the old pavement are extended up into the new overlay.
