Abstract

This study presents a fully coupled peridynamic thermomechanical equations, and their nondimensional form for two-dimensional analysis. Peridynamic solutions to both the thermal and deformation field equations are verified against the known solutions. Subsequently, the coupled thermal and structural response of a plate with a pre-existing crack is investigated. It accurately predicts the temperature rise at the crack tips as the crack propagates.
