After regularization of the displacement discontinuity, a process zone of finite width with continuous strain fields emerges. The stress fields are independently energy-deduced, modeled via specific constitutive laws, and subsequently introduced within the virtual work principle.

Abstract

This work focuses on XFEM modeling of elastodamaging interfaces characterized by regularized kinematics. After regularization of the displacement discontinuity, a process zone of finite width with continuous strain fields emerges. The stress fields are independently energy-deduced, modeled via specific constitutive laws, and subsequently introduced within the virtual work principle. The methodology can address cohesive interfaces with vanishing and finite thickness in a unified way. Two-dimensional results for a strain localization problem and several delamination tests are discussed in detail and compared with previous numerical/experimental results.
