Course Description: This training class begins with a practical review of Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics concepts and principles along with some example applications using AFGROW.

The remainder of the class will familiarize students with the design and operation of the AFGROW crack growth life analysis program. The following topics will be addressed: AFGROW graphical user interface, spectrum management, stress intensity models, crack growth rate data, stress state effects, AFGROW preferences, advanced models, and crack initiation. Several example problems are included to gain hands-on experience with AFGROW. The class will also introduce the use of advanced features unique to AFGROW (COM automation, Advanced Multiple Crack Solutions, and Plug-In K-Solutions). We are also including a section on tips and tricks to help users model some practical complex geometries (i.e.: continuing damage scenarios).
