Computational modelling of cracks in viscoplastic media
(Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on FractureProceedings of the 10th International Conference on Fracture, 2001)
A newly developed numerical model is used to simulate propagating cracks in a strain softening viscoplastic medium. The model allows the simulation of displacement discontinuities independently of a finite element mesh. ...
Analysis of delamination growth with discontinuous finite elements
(Solids, Structures and Coupled Problems in EngineeringSolids, Structures and Coupled Problems in Engineering, 2001)
In this contribution a new finite element is presented for the simulation of delamination growth in thin layered composite materials. The element is based on the solid-like shell element, a volume element that can be used ...
