Summary

The design of anisotropic brittle structures hinges upon: (1) construction of an anisotropic multiaxial statistical failure model; (2) definition of anisotropic stress-strain (nonlinear) constitutive equations; and (3) incorporating the above into an analytical package. An example was given for thermal shock of anisotropic poly-crystalline graphites. For more information, refer to:
