  • Application of configurational mechanics to crack propagation 

    Crusat Codina, Laura; Carol, Ignacio (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Crack initiation and propagation is an essential aspect in the mechanical behavior of a large variety of materials and structures in all fields of Engineering and, in particular, the prediction of crack trajectories is one ...
  • Influence of cracking in the desiccation process of clay soils 

    Levatti, Hector Ulises; Prat Catalán, Pere; Ledesma Villalba, Alberto (2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    It is well known that clayey soils undergoing desiccation tend to shrink and eventually crack. Analysis of the behaviour and influence of cracks in these types of soils is very important in several engineering fields such ...
