Maximum shielding stress intensity factors in silica

Schell, K. G.; Bucharsky, C.; Rizzi, G.; Fett, T.

When water penetrates into silica surfaces near a crack tip, it reacts with the
SiO$_{2}$ network and generates hydroxyl $\equiv$SiOH. Due to the hydroxyl generation,
silica expands and gives rise for swelling stresses. The consequence is a
fracture mechanics shielding stress intensity factor K$_{sh}$<0. The fracture mechanical
treatment of swelling in the crack-tip region is significantly complicated
by the occurrence of damage due to the production of hydroxyls.
A maximum possible shielding effect is obtained by using an asymmetry parameter
h=1 in the crack wake ($\delta$$_{h}$<0) and neglecting the tension region ahead
the crack tip, where strong damage is present under hydrostatic tension
