dc.description.abstractUnderstanding 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 of cracks is required. Besides crack propagation, crack branching can also be modelled by the appropriate X-FEM enrichment. Multiple applications of crack branching simulation can be found, including fracking and dynamic crack propagation.
