We present a numerical implementation of a model for void coalescence and fracture in nonlinear elasticity. The model is similar to the Ambrosio–Tortorelli regularization of the standard free-discontinuity variational model for quasistatic brittle fracture. The main change is the introduction of a nonlinear polyconvex energy that allows for cavitation. This change requires new analytic and numerical techniques. We propose a numerical method based on alternating directional minimisation and a… CONTINUE READING
