      Tamayo Mas, Elena; Feliu Fabà, Jordi; Casado Antolín, Montserrat; Rodríguez Ferran, Antonio (John Wiley & sons, 2019-10-05)
      Open Access
      A new continuous-discontinuous model for fracture that accounts for crack branching in a natural manner is presented. It combines a gradient-enhanced damage model based on nonlocal displacements to describe diffuse cracks ...

      Cracking of quasi-brittle materials (such as concrete, rocks,) may be modelled by means of continuous, discontinuous or continuous-discontinuous models. The latter combine a continuous damage model for the initial stages ...
