Handbook of peridynamic modeling
Part of the Advances in Applied Mathematics series
This handbook covers the peridynamic modeling of failure and damage.
Peridynamics is a reformulation of continuum mechanics based on integration of interactions rather than spatial differentiation of displacements.
The book extends the classical theory of continuum mechanics to allow unguided modeling of crack propagation/fracture in brittle, quasi-brittle, and ductile materials; autonomous transition from continuous damage/fragmentation to fracture; modeling of long-range forces within a continuous body; and multiscale coupling in a consistent mathematical framework.
