# Localization Study of a Non-Local Energetic Damage Model

@article{Jirsek2008LocalizationSO, title={Localization Study of a Non-Local Energetic Damage Model}, author={Milan Jir{\'a}sek and Jan Zeman}, journal={arXiv: Materials Science}, year={2008} }

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.
