Abstract

Peridynamics converts the existing governing field equations from their local to nonlocal form while introducing an internal length parameter. As a result, the equations become valid everywhere regardless of discontinuities. It removes the obstacles concerning the prediction of crack initiation and growth in materials at multiple sites. This study presents a modification to the original peridynamic formulation to employ arbitrary discretization.
