This paper presents numerical ductile tearing simulation results of four complex cracked pipes made of two materials, performed at Battelle, Columbus, OH. In ductile tearing simulation, stress-modified fracture strain model is used, which is determined from tensile test results and fracture toughness test data. Overall good agreement is found in comparing simulation results with experimental load, crack length, and crack mouth opening displacements versus load-line displacement (LLD) data. The effect of the complex crack on J–resistance curves is discussed.
