Computer Modeling of Material and Structural Failure,

MS Organizers: Guillermo Etse, Paulo Pimenta, Eduardo Dvorkin, Osvaldo Manzoli

MS Abstract:
This symposium is devoted to the discussion of developments on computational modeling of material failure in solids for different types of materials and loading scenarios. Material failure is here understood as the loss of the structural strength due to the formation of localization bands, propagating cracks or shear bands.

Topics of interest include:

Characterization of strong discontinuities in solids for brittle and ductile failures.
Finite elements with embedded discontinuities.
Nodally enriched finite element formulations to capture discontinuities, X-FEM, partition of unity methods and others.
Cohesive interfacial elements.
Adaptive finite element methods.
Meshless methods for discontinuous solutions.
Regularization and strain localization techniques.
Consideration of dynamic effects, dynamic fracture.
Localized discontinuous failure in beams and frames, plastic hinges.
Numerical techniques for cracks in plates and shells.
Consideration of coupled problems, including failure in coupled thermo-mechanical and porous media.
Applications in bio-, micro- and nano- mechanics.
Crack branching modeling
Crack tracking algorithms
Steel reinforced concrete
Fiber reinforced concrete
Computational multi-scale based material failure models
