Kurzfassung englisch:
Recently, the force balance method (FBM) has been proposed to calculate geometric correction factors for the stress distribution ahead of a crack tip. In this paper, the effectiveness of the FBM is proved by means of a numerical evaluation of the stress distribution ahead of a crack tip in finite-width centre-cracked specimens loaded by stresses along a portion of the crack. The finite element method is used for this purpose.

Keywords: finite element method, crack stress fields, geometric correction factor, force balance method
