    • Presents contributions from top researchers working in the field
    • Offers a clear and quick introduction to peridynamics and shows advanced applications
    • Provides motivations for nonlocal modeling and eliminates common misconceptions
    • Discusses the mathematics and software implementation of peridynamics
    • Covers peridynamic models of fracture, damage, and fragmentation
    • Describes practical multiscale and multiphysics models of nonlocality


This handbook covers the peridynamic modeling of failure and damage. Peridynamics is a reformulation of continuum mechanics based on integration of interactions rather than spatial differentiation of displacements. The book extends the classical theory of continuum mechanics to allow unguided modeling of crack propagation/fracture in brittle, quasi-brittle, and ductile materials; autonomous transition from continuous damage/fragmentation to fracture; modeling of long-range forces within a continuous body; and multiscale coupling in a consistent mathematical framework.
