    • A multiscale damage model for composite materials using a FFT-Based method 

      Spahn, Johannes; Andrä, Heiko; Kabel, Matthias; Müller, Ralf (CIMNE, 2013)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Modeling failure and progressive damage of composite materials presents a challenging task and is currently subject of many research activities in the field of computational mechanics. Conventional methods which assume ...
    • Exponential finite element shape functions for a phase field model of brittle fracture 

      Kuhn, Charlotte; Müller, Ralf (CIMNE, 2011)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      In phase field models for fracture a continuous scalar field variable is used to indicate cracks, i.e. the value 1 of the phase field variable is assigned to sound material, while the value 0 indicates fully broken material. ...
