    • A continuous-discontinuous model for crack branching 

      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 ...
    • A continuous-discontinusous model to simulate crack branching in quasi-brittle failure 

      Feliu Fabà, Jordi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07-20)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Understanding the material failure of quasi-brittle materials, such as concrete, is of vital importance in civil engineering. A continuous-discontinuous model using X-FEM enrichment can be useful when an explicit representation ...
