Simulation of the nonlinear mechanical response of materials with explicit representation of microstructural features is extremely challenging. These models typically involve a very large number of degrees of freedom, and are prone to convergence difficulties when searching for roots to nonlinear equilibrium equations. We focus on an idealized material model that is motivated by the microstructure of synthetic nacre: individual ‘bricks’ (representing ceramic platelets) interact through… CONTINUE READING
