Simulation of Cracks in a Cosserat Medium using the eXtended Finite Element Method Kapiturova, Maria (University of Waterloo, 2013-02-15)This research investigates fracture behaviour in the Cosserat materials. The Cosserat elasticity description of the materials incorporates a characteristic length scale (e.g. grains, particles, fibres, etc.) into the model. ...
