Open challenges in the phase field approach to fracture mechanics

Minisymposium organized by Marco Paggi and José Reinoso at the World Congress in Computational Mechanics WCCM 2018 in New York, USA: http://www.wccm2018.org

 

This minisymposium aims at gathering together experts in computational fracture mechanics to discuss open challenges and generalizations of the phase field approach to fracture (PFAF). Selected original contributions will be invited for being considered for publication into a special issue of an international journal.

Topics of interest are (but are not limited to):
- Generalization of the PFAF to viscoelastic materials;
- Generalization of the PFAF to mechanical and geometrical nonlinear problems;
- Generalization of the PFAF to dynamics;
- Generalization of the PFAF to anisotropic and/or inhomogeneous materials;
- Generalization of the PFAF to interface fracture problems;
- Implementation of the PFAF in finite element technologies;
- Interaction between PFAF and cohesive zone models;
- Comparison between the PFAF and other fracture mechanics/damage mechanics formulations;
- Prediction of size-scale effects;
- Modelling of fatigue crack growth.
