For the reason that January 1990, whilst the 1st version ofthis first-of-a-kind ebook seemed, there was a lot experimental and theoretical development within the multi­ disciplinary topic of tribology and mechanics of magnetic garage units. the topic has matured right into a rigorous self-discipline, and plenty of collage tribology and mechanics classes now oftentimes comprise fabric on magnetic garage units.

The present work searches for a solution that can show the expression for mass and velocity, for each stage of the phenomenon. The results from the numerical method used were plotted and analyzed. The treatment was performed using Maplesoft Maple software. As a result, graphs were generated, which allow a deeper analysis of the model. Finally, advance in the knowledge of fracture processes in materials by high velocity impact can be concluded. This fact permits developments in materials that can perform shock absorption.

The equations were manipulated to find a single problem for velocity and mass separately for each stage. The data and initial parameters provided by the original work [1] were used for the differential equations found. To find the solution, the software Mapplesoft Maple V12 was used. Finally, the solution was plotted and compared to former results [1]. 26 Advances in Fracture and Damage Mechanics X Materials and Methods The software Maplesoft Maple V12 was used to solve the system. Al-Qureshi`s work [1] provided all materials constant values and initial parameters necessary.

In the case of notched beams loaded in three-point-bending (TPB), adding finer grain structure led to a significant reduction in the dependency of the peak force on the mesh density. However, the energy dissipated during the fracture simulation was still affected significantly by the mesh density. Introduction Lattice models are a well established tool for fracture modeling and they appear to be very helpful, especially thanks to the increasing power of modern computers. In classical lattice models, the material is represented by a set of discrete elements inter-connected by springs.
