A General-Purpose, Inelastic, Rotation-Free Kirchhoff-Love Shell Formulation for Peridynamics

  title={A General-Purpose, Inelastic, Rotation-Free Kirchhoff-Love Shell Formulation for Peridynamics},
  author={Masoud Behzadinasab and Mert Deniz Alaydin and Nathaniel Trask and Yuri Bazilevs},
We present a comprehensive rotation-free Kirchhoff—Love (KL) shell formulation for peridynamics (PD) that is capable of modeling large elasto-plastic deformations and fracture in thin-walled structures. To remove the need for a predefined global parametric domain, Principal Component Analysis is employed in a meshfree setting to develop a local parameterization of the shell midsurface. The KL shell kinematics is utilized to develop a correspondence-based PD formulation. A bond-stabilization… Expand
