Crack Para Solid Edge V20
To quantitatively evaluate crack width of concrete structures surface, this paper presents a stereovision-based crack width detection method. Compared with the traditional visual inspection with single camera, this approach uses a pair of cameras to capture cracks images for recovering 3D coordinates of crack edge, and does not needs scale attached to concrete surface for converting measurement unit. A novel Canny-Zernike combination algorithm is utilized to obtain the image coordinates of crack edge in the left crack image, this combination algorithm can achieve 0.02 subpixel precision. The 3D coordinates of crack edge are acquired by projecting crack edge curve on concrete surface where cracks are located. The crack width is assessed by the minimum distance between two sides of crack edge. The detection tests are conducted on three concrete beams destroyed in static test, and the crack width of two inspection zones on each beam is acquired. Experimental results indicate that the stereovision-based crack width detection approach can accurately measure the crack width compared with the crack width gauge or the vernier calliper. This verifies the proposed method is applicable and useful for assessing the crack width of concrete surface.

Crack is produced by dissolving powdered cocaine in a mixture of water and ammonia or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). The mixture is boiled until a solid substance forms. The solid is removed from the liquid, dried, and then broken into the chunks (rocks) that are sold as crack cocaine.
Stable Rock is natural solid mineral matter that can be excavated with vertical sides and remain intact while exposed. It is usually identified by a rock name such as granite or sandstone. Determining whether a deposit is of this type may be difficult unless it is known whether cracks exist and whether or not the cracks run into or away from the excavation.
I have a black walnut live edge walnut table, has two seams. After having in my house for 3 months I am having some movement at the seams which has cracked the oil based polyurethane. Is there anything I can do to fix it or will it keep happening?
Crumbling and cracking around the edges of your driveway indicate that the asphalt is too thin in those places. It's common for the asphalt to spread beyond the aggregate base during laying, creating a narrow strip of asphalt that doesn't have a solid foundation. While these edge cracks aren't dangerous, they are unsightly. One way to remedy this is to hire a driveway specialist to remove the cracked edges, recompact the foundation, lay a brick edging, then lay new asphalt between the existing driveway and the brick.
The Crack-Pac Flex-H2O polyurethane injection resin seals leaking cracks, voids or fractures from 1/32" to 1/4" wide in concrete or solid masonry. Designed to perform in applications where water is seeping or mildly leaking from the crack, the polyurethane is packaged in the cartridge and an accelerator is packaged in the nozzle. When the resin encounters water as it is injected into the crack, it becomes an expanding foam that provides a flexible seal in leaking and non-leaking cracks.
Help. I had my second floor bedroom done in pretreated hickory a couple of years ago. No signs of cracking or cupping or separation. At night, mainly during the spring or fall the floors pop real loud over the entire room. Sounds like gunshots and woke us both up in a moment of terror. Thought the floor was ripping itself up. When I turn on the lights there is no evidence of changes or plank movement. It can be real scared and there has to be something wrong. Any ideas or suggestions for help would be greatly appreciated.
We have solid Brazilian teak floors installed in our new home 3 years ago. We had our crawlspace enclosed and they installed two dehumidifiers at the time. Over the last year we have noticed that our flooring is separating a lot in several places. Should we install a humidifer for the heated months? We have had several people work under the house to try and pull the flooring back together without luck.
Before proceeding to consider the stress analysis of cracked bodies, it is important to distinguish basic "modes" of stressing. As shown in Fig.2.9, the three basic modes are: opening (mode I), in-plane shear (mode II) and out-of-plane tearing (mode III). Mode I corresponds to normal separation of the crack faces under the action of tensile stresses, which is by far the most widely encountered in practice. The difference between Mode II and Mode III is that the shearing action in the former case is normal to the crack front in the plane of the crack whereas the shearing action in Mode III is parallel to the crack front. A cracked body in reality can be loaded in any one of these three, or a combination of these three modes.
By means of various techniques, the stress, strain, and displacement fields associated with a crack embedded in an elastic solid can be solved analytically. One of such method is due to Westergaard, who introduced the following stress function,
where Y is called the geometry factor, signifying the geometry of a crack system in relation to the applied load. Normally this geometry factor can be looked up in technical reference books. For a centre crack in an infinite plate, Y = 1.0. The geometry of the cracked body imposes an effect on the new crack tip stress field, thus modifying the value of the stress intensity factor. In general, if the edge crack is situated in a strip of finite width, w, then the correction factor becomes a function of (a/w)
The simplest geometry factor is that for an edge crack of length, a, at the edge of a semi-infinite half space: the increased ability of the crack to open causes the stress intensity factor to increase by some 12%,
A few points of interest arise from these solutions. Firstly, the stress intensity factor defines the amplitude of the crack tip singularity, and consequently the intensity of the local stress field. Local stresses near the crack tip are proportional to K, which uniquely defines the crack tip conditions. This single-parameter description of crack tip conditions is probably the most important concept of fracture mechanics. Secondly, it should be pointed that these solutions are valid only in the vicinity of the crack tip; higher order terms need to be taken into account when far field information is required.
We can now return to the Griffith's energy concept, with special reference to its relation to the stress intensity factor. Proceeding as before, we may identify the mechanical energy release during the crack extension with the work done by hypothetically imposed surface tractions. As illustrated in Fig. 2.15, forces are applied to the crack edge, sufficient to close the crack over an infinitesimal distance. The work done by this force is obviously equal to the amount of energy that needs to be consumed in order to make the crack grow by this distance.

Fracture mechanics is the field of mechanics concerned with the study of the propagation of cracks in materials. It uses methods of analytical solid mechanics to calculate the driving force on a crack and those of experimental solid mechanics to characterize the material's resistance to fracture.
Theoretically, the stress ahead of a sharp crack tip becomes infinite and cannot be used to describe the state around a crack. Fracture mechanics is used to characterise the loads on a crack, typically using a single parameter to describe the complete loading state at the crack tip. A number of different parameters have been developed. When the plastic zone at the tip of the crack is small relative to the crack length the stress state at the crack tip is the result of elastic forces within the material and is termed linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) and can be characterised using the stress intensity factor K \displaystyle K . Although the load on a crack can be arbitrary, in 1957 G. Irwin found any state could be reduced to a combination of three independent stress intensity factors:
The characterising parameter describes the state of the crack tip which can then be related to experimental conditions to ensure similitude. Crack growth occurs when the parameters typically exceed certain critical values. Corrosion may cause a crack to slowly grow when the stress corrosion stress intensity threshold is exceeded. Similarly, small flaws may result in crack growth when subjected to cyclic loading. Known as fatigue, it was found that for long cracks, the rate of growth is largely governed by the range of the stress intensity Δ K \displaystyle \Delta K experienced by the crack due to the applied loading. Fast fracture will occur when the stress intensity exceeds the fracture toughness of the material. The prediction of crack growth is at the heart of the damage tolerance mechanical design discipline. 350c69d7ab
