Workshop "Regularised models of brittle fracture" 2016

mardi 1er mars 2016, par samuel forest

The CNRS International Associate Laboratory Coss&Vita, the Paris Federation of Mechanics Labs (h ttp :// and the International Center M&MoCS
( organise a one day workshop on "Regularised models of brittle fracture”.

The workshop will take place in Paris, May 2, 2016, at the d’Alembert Institute of the University Pierre et Marie Curie.

Workshop topic

Regularised models of brittle fracture are gaining an increasing interest in theoretical and computational mechanics for their ability of recovering crack nucleation and the propagation of complex crack patterns, without the need of a computational description of the crack geometry.
The aim of this workshop is to discuss in an informal setting about recent approaches and results in the use of regularised approaches to model brittle fracture phenomena, including :

- Regularized damage models,
- Phase field models of fracture,
- Cohesive zone models,
- Dynamic fracture
- Fracture in heterogeneous materials,
- Peridynamics.

Invited speakers from academia and industry will be selected to provide an overview of the fundamental theoretical approaches and issues, present numerical aspects and difficulties, discuss about applications to the understanding of open problems in the physics of fracture, debate about the academic work in the field can help in responding to the current needs in applicative industrial contexts.

Date and location

The one-day workshop will be held Monday 2 May 2016 at the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Central Paris ( ).
