Localization Study of a Non-Local Energetic Damage Model

  title={Localization Study of a Non-Local Energetic Damage Model},
  author={Milan Jir{\'a}sek and Jan Zeman},
  journal={arXiv: Materials Science},
The contribution presents an analysis of a rate-independent non-local damage model, recently proposed by (Mielke and Roubicek, 2006). An analytical as well as numerical solution of a simple one-dimensional bifurcation problem is performed, demonstrating that, for the elementary localization test, the model is free of pathological features.

A quasistatic mixed-mode delamination model 1
The quasistatic rate-independent evolution of a delamination in the so-called mixed mode, i.e. distinguishing opening (Mode I) from shearing (Mode II), devised in [45], is rigorously analysed as far


Complete damage in elastic and viscoelastic media and its energetics
Abstract A model for the evolution of damage that allows for complete disintegration is addressed. Small strains and a linear response function are assumed. The “flow rule” for the damage parameter
A complete-damage problem at small strains
Abstract.Damage of a linearly-responding material that can completely disintegrate is addressed at small strains. Using time-varying Dirichlet boundary conditions we set up a rateindependent
Nonlocal models for damage and fracture: Comparison of approaches
Abstract The paper analyzes nonlocal constitutive models used in simulations of damage and fracture processes of quasibrittle materials. A number of nonlocal formulations found in the literature are
Damage of an elastic body undergoing large deformations by a "hard-device" loading possibly combined with an impact (modeled by a unilateral frictionless contact) of another, ideally rigid body is
Spectral analysis of localization in nonlocal and over-nonlocal materials with softening plasticity or damage
The paper shows that spectral wave propagation analysis reveals in a simple and clear manner the effectiveness of various regularization techniques for softening materials, i.e., materials for which
Damage, gradient of damage and principle of virtual power
A theory of continuum damage mechanics is developed within the framework of the principle of virtual power. Because the damage in a solid results from microscopic movements, we decided to include the
Comparison of integral-type nonlocal plasticity models for strain-softening materials
The paper analyzes and compares a number of softening plasticity models regularized by nonlocal averaging. To highlight the fundamental properties and gain insight into the regularizing effect of
A critical comparison of nonlocal and gradient-enhanced softening continua
Continuous models of material degradation may cease to produced meaningful results in the presence of high strain gradients. These gradients may occur for instance in the propagation of waves with
A thermodynamically motivated implicit gradient damage framework and its application to brick masonry cracking
A new gradient damage model is derived starting from thermodynamic statements. Nonstandard terms are added to the free energy potential for this purpose. In contrast with existing approaches, these
Chapter 6 – Evolution of Rate-Independent Systems
The chapter compares different aspects of rate-independent models or hysteresis operators in the context of continuum mechanics by translating them into one language, and thus provides a useful overview of the different methods in the field.
