Configurational‐Force‐Based Adaptive FE Solver for a Phase Field Model of Fracture

The computational modeling of failure mechanisms in solids due to fracture based on sharp crack discontinuities suffers in situations with complex crack topologies. This can be overcome by diffusive

A phase-field approach to conchoidal fracture

The accuracy and the robustness of the phase-field approaches for conchoidal fracture for both, the linear-elastic case as well as the case of finite deformations are demonstrated and it is shown that using the approach the arising systems can be solved efficiently in parallel with excellent scaling behavior.

A review on phase-field models of brittle fracture and a new fast hybrid formulation

In this contribution we address the issue of efficient finite element treatment for phase-field modeling of brittle fracture. We start by providing an overview of the existing quasi-static and

A robust algorithm for configurational‐force‐driven brittle crack propagation with R‐adaptive mesh alignment

The paper considers a variational formulation of brittle fracture in elastic solids and proposes a numerical implementation by a finite element method. On the theoretical side, we outline a

Experimental validation of a phase-field model for fracture

Simulations from a numerical implementation of the phase-field model for brittle fracture are compared against analytical and experimental results in order to explore the verification and validation
