. Fracture mechanics or crack mechanics is a branch of solids mechanics that studies issues such as the process of creating and spreading cracks in solids and structures and its effect on deformation, depreciation and deterioration of structures. This branch of mechanics has been studied from two points of view of mechanics, namely in continuous and discrete environments. This science is widely used in shipbuilding, structural construction, especially concrete, geophysics and geology, mechanical engineering and medical engineering. Research based on this branch of mechanics has been presented over time in the form of various standards, the most important and acceptable of which in the industry is BS 7910.
This standard defines equations based on which the horizontal component of damage assessment diagrams, stresses on pipes and solid structures can be calculated. Many softwares have been provided based on this standard and CrackWISE is one of the best in this field. Using this program, you can calculate and evaluate pipes for flat defects such as defects in metal welds. The reason for this type of defect in welding engineering is the lack of melting and sufficient penetration of the metal into the welding grooves.
Using this software and based on the proposed standard, the input data are evaluated using the equations of failure mechanics and the level of risk in risk-sensitive equipment is calculated. Using this program, engineers can easily analyze and calculate the condition of pipes, the integrity of welding areas, the tolerance of pipes and metal equipment against cracks and possible failures and the amount of damage. This software is an extract of 20 years of work experience and it can be considered as one of the best programs in this field.
After installation, copy and replace the files in the Crack folder in the program installation location; Run the program and select the Try mode, and in the next step, fill in the required information as desired and confirm.
