A 2D finite element model of a C(T) specimen is developed by a zero‐thickness layer of cohesive elements, to simulate crack propagation. Starting from an initial model without H, the embrittlement effect is simulated by modifying the traction‐separation law (TSL) of cohesive elements, according to relationships taking into account H diffusion at the crack tip and εP. Parameters of TSL are calibrated in order to reproduce the experimental toughness data.

Abstract

A 2D finite element model of a C(T) specimen is developed by a zero‐thickness layer of cohesive elements, to simulate crack propagation. Starting from an initial model without H, the embrittlement effect is simulated by modifying the traction‐separation law (TSL) of cohesive elements, according to relationships taking into account H diffusion at the crack tip and εP. Parameters of TSL are calibrated in order to reproduce the experimental toughness data.
