MS36 Peridynamics: Material Modeling Without Derivatives

9:45-11:45 AM
Room: Shelby Center 150 - First Floor

Organizer:

Abstract:
Peridynamics is a recently-developed reformulation of solid mechanics that is non-local and avoids spatial derivatives, using an integral approach instead. Thus, it is suitable for modeling phenomena involving discontinuities, including cracking and fracture. In this minisymposium, speakers will address analytical and computational issues pertinent to peridynamics or related non-local models.
