Material failure and fragmentation analysis

  • Impact and penetration, 3D crack propagation in solid

       Delamination and folding, fragmentation   

  • Material: metal, concrete, rock and soil, composite, glass type brittle material

  • Material fragmentation due to dynamic wave propagation

  • Numerical approaches

    • SPG

      • Immerse method for fiber-reinforced composite

      • Ability to handle flying particles

      • Particle-based BODY-TO-BODY and SELF contacts

      • Support EOS materials

    • Peridynamics

      • Bond-based version: brittle material

      • Ability to effectively capture dynamic propagation of multiple cracks
