Computational homogenization for multiscale crack modeling: implementational and computational aspects Nguyen, Vinh Phu; Lloberas Valls, Oriol; Sluys, Lambertus J.; Stroeven, Martijn (John Wiley & sons, 2012-01)
Open AccessA computational homogenization procedure for cohesive and adhesive crack modeling of materials with a heterogeneous microstructure has been recently presented in Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering (2010, ...
Lloberas Valls, Oriol; Rixen, Daniel J.; Simone, Angelo; Sluys, Lambertus J.; Stroeven, Martijn (2009)
Restricted access - publisher's policyIn this study a FETI: Finite Element Tearing and Interconnecting  technique is adopted and exploited for the efficient and accurate modeling of softening materials such as concrete and rock. A fie scale analysis in which ...
Nguyen, Vinh Phu; Lloberas Valls, Oriol; Stroeven, Martijn; Sluys, Lambertus J. (2011-02)
Open AccessThe existence of a representative volume element (RVE) for a class of quasi-brittle materials having a random heterogeneous microstructure in tensile, shear and mixed mode loading is demonstrated by deriving traction–separation ...
On the existence of representative volumes for softening quasi-brittle materials: a failure zone averaging scheme Nguyen, Vinh Phu; Lloberas Valls, Oriol; Stroeven, Martijn; Sluys, Lambertus J. (2010-11)
Open AccessThe concept of the representative volume element (RVE) for softening materials is revised in this contribution. It is demonstrated by means of numerical simulations that there exists a sample which is statistically ...
