Fracture Criterion for the Axisymmetric Disking Process

Disking is a process designed to cut brittle plates and rods. In axisymmetric disking, a pre-cracked cylindrical rod is placed in an elastic, annular sheath and the composite is subjected to biaxial fluid pressure. At a critical pressure the crack runs across the circular section of the rod producin...
