Abstract

A numerical code for modeling crack propagation using the cell method is proposed. The Mohr-Coulomb criterion is used to compute the direction of crack propagation, and the new crack geometry is realized by an intra-element propagation technique. Automatic remeshing is then activated. Applications in Mode I and Mixed Mode are presented to illustrate the robustness of the implementation.
