free-discontinuity model

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 - 10:00am - 10:50am
First, some numerical and Gamma-convergence results will be presented for an adaptation of Francfort-Marigo's free-discontinuity model for fracture to the case of large strains. The aim is to show the potential of the approach for the study of the initiation of cracks by void coalescence. In the second part of the talk, a rigorous analysis of the distribution of voids before the nucleation of cracks will be presented.
