MLPG-Eshelby Method in Computational Finite Deformation Solid Mechanics

Here is a recent two-part article by Z.D. Han and S.N. Atluri on "MLPG-Eshelby Method in Computational Finite Deformation Solid Mechanics", which presents a new method for the computational mechanics of large strain deformations of solids, as a fundamental departure from the currently popular finite element methods (FEM).
The abstract of the second part of the paper is given at here:

Are there any online courses for fatigue and fracture?

I have seen many lecture notes on general topics like stress, strain, tensor etc..

But, I am more interested in learning about fatigue and fracture mechanics.

Please let me know, if there are any online courses, for the above given topics.

Thanks,

Namratha.
