Embedded discontinuities for softening solids
(Proceedings of the 4th Asia-Pacific Conference on Computational Mechanics (APCOM '99)Proceedings of the 4th Asia-Pacific Conference on Computational Mechanics (APCOM '99), 1999-12-06)
Additional, discontinuous functions are added to the displacement field of standard finite elements in order to capture highly localised zones of intense straining. By embedding discontinuities within an element it is ...
Application of continuum laws in discontinuity analysis based on a regularised displacement jump
(Proceedings of the European Conference on Computational Mechanics ECCM '99Proceedings of the European Conference on Computational Mechanics ECCM '99, 1999)
The application of continuum constitutive laws in embedded strong discontinuity analysis is examined. By adopting a regularised discontinuity (approximating the unbounded strain field resulting from a displacement jump ...
