Investigation on Transient Responses of a Piezoelectric Crack by using Durbin and Zhao Methods for Numerical Inversion of Laplace Transforms

  • Y.-S. Ing (a1) and H.-F. Liao (a1)

This study applies the numerical inversion of Laplace transform methods to study the piezoelectric dynamic fracture problem, recalculating Chen and Karihaloo's [1] analysis on the transient response of a impermeable crack subjected to anti-plane mechanical and in-plane electric impacts. Three numerical methods were adopted for calculating the dynamic stress intensity factor: Durbin method, Zhao method 1, and Zhao method 2. The results obtained were more accurate than the results in Chen and Karihaloo's [1] study. Through the calculation, this study presents a better range of parameters for the above three methods, and compares the advantages and disadvantages of each method in detail.
