TC08 Scope

The Symposium will bring together researchers developing models and associated numerical methods to simulate damage development, crack initiation and growth in test specimens and actual structures.

The main topics are as follows:

  • Development of new damage/fracture models
  • Tools to simulate the failure of specimens and structures
  • Phase-field models for failure
  • Regularized models for failure
  • Crack propagation over long distances / re-meshing
  • Cohesive Zone Models
  • Tools for LEFM --- NLFM
  • X--FEM methods
  • Tools for ductile, creep, brittle fracture and transition
  • Applications to large structures
  • Machine learning applied to fracture
