Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a large bulk of experimental data from static tests of sharp and blunt V-notches and from fatigue tests of welded joints are presented in an unified way by using the mean value of the Strain Energy Density (SED) over a given finite-size volume surrounding the highly stressed regions.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, an extension of dynamic relaxation methods for obtaining steady-state solutions of nonlinear peridynamic equations is presented, which can be used to validate peridynamics predictions against experimental measurements.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Theoretical analyses and experimental observations of the failure and fracture behaviors of piezoelectric materials are presented in this paper, where the theoretical analyses are based on the Stroh formalism.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a phase-field model for fracture in Kirchoff-love thin shells using the local maximum-entropy (LME) mesh-free method is presented, which does not require an explicit representation and tracking, which is advantage over techniques as the extended finite element method that requires tracking of the crack paths.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a physics informed neural network (PINN) algorithm for solving brittle fracture problems is presented. But, the proposed approach is limited to two problems, and it is not suitable for other problems.
