Analysis of dynamic damage propagation in discrete beam structures

Abstract

In the last decade, significant theoretical advances were obtained for steady-state fracture propagation in spring-mass lattice structures, that also revealed surprising fracture regimes. Very few articles exist, however, on the dynamic fracture processes in lattices composed of beams. In this paper we analyse a failure (feeding) wave propagating in a beam… (More)
