Colloquium Abstract: Dr. Anthony Peirce, Department of Mathematics, UBC

Fractures and Frontiers

In this talk I will discuss some of the continuum and discrete models of fractures in brittle materials. I will outline some of the analytic properties of these models as well as some of the numerical challenges that these models provide. I will describe some of the novel numerical schemes that have been developed in the process of addressing these challenges.
