CONTROL ALGORITHM FOR CONVERGENCE PROBLEMS IN CRACK PROPAGATION STUDIES

Posted on by EmilioMtnez

ABAQUS input files with a control algorithm to overcome convergence problems in cohesive zone modelling of crack propagation. The code is largely inspired by the work by Segurado and Llorca (2004) on particle fracture in composites.
