Item Energy-dissipation balance of a smooth moving crack(2018-08) Caponi, Maicol; Lucardesi, Ilaria; Tasso, Emanuele; MathematicsShow more In this paper we provide necessary and sufficient conditions in order to guarantee the energy-dissipation balance of a Mode III crack, growing on a prescribed smooth path. Moreover, we characterize the singularity of the displacement near the crack tip, generalizing the result in [S. Nicaise, A.M. Sandig - J. Math. Anal. Appl., 2007] valid for straight fractures.Show more Item On the blow-up of GSBV functions under suitable geometric properties of the jump set(SISSA, 2019-06) Tasso, EmanueleShow more In this paper we investigate the fine properties of functions under suitable geometric conditions on the jump set. Precisely, given an open set Ω С Rn and given p > 1 we study the blow-up of functions u Є2 GSBV (Ω), whose jump sets belongs to an appropriate class Jp and whose approximate gradient is p-th power summable. In analogy with the theory of p-capacity in the context of Sobolev spaces, we prove that the blow-up of u converges up to a set of Hausdorff dimension less than or equal to n - p. Moreover, we are able to prove the following result which in the case of W1,p (Ω) functions can be stated as follows: whenever uk strongly converges to u, then up to subsequences, uk pointwise converges to u except on a set whose Hausdorff dimension is at most n - p.Show more Item On the continuity of the trace operator in GSBV (Ω) and GSBD (Ω)(2018-09) Tasso, Emanuele; MathematicsShow more In this paper we present a new result of continuity for the trace operator acting on functions that might jump on a prescribed (n−1)-dimensional set Г, with the only hypothesis of being rectifiable and of finite measure. We also show an application of our result in relation to the variational model of elasticity with cracks, when the associated minimum problems are coupled with Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions.Show more Item Weak formulation of elastodynamics in domains with growing cracks(SISSA, 2018-11) Tasso, Emanuele; MathematicsShow more In this paper we formulate and study the system of elastodynamics on domains with arbitrary growing cracks. This includes homogeneous Neumann conditions on the crack sets and mixed general Dirichlet-Neumann conditions on the boundary. The only assumptions on the crack sets are to be (n − 1)-rectifiable with finite surface measure, and increasing in the sense of set inclusions. In particular they might be dense, hence the weak formulation must fall outside the usual context of Sobolev spaces and Korn's inequality. We prove existence of a solution both for the damped and undamped systems, while in the damped case we are also able to prove uniqueness and an energy balance.Show more
