      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      The general objective of this thesis is the numerical representation of discrete cracks and their propagation using concepts of Configurational Mechanics, in such a way that their trajectory really corresponds to an energy ...
    • XFEM formulation with sub-interpolation, and equivalence to zero-thickness interface elements 

      Crusat Codina, Laura; Carol, Ignacio; Garolera Vinent, Daniel (2019-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      This paper describes a particular formulation of the extended finite element method (XFEM) specifically conceived for application to existing discontinuities of fixed location, for instance, in geological media. The ...
