    • Computational modelling of cracks in viscoplastic media 

      Wells, G N; Sluys, L J; De Borst, R (2001)
      A newly developed numerical model is used to simulate propagating cracks in a strain softening viscoplastic medium. The model allows the simulation of displacement discontinuities independently of a finite element mesh. ...
    • A Précis of Some Recent Developments in Computational Failure Mechanics 

      De Borst, R; Askes, Harm; Gutiérrez, Miguel A; Remmers, Joris J C; Wells, G N (2002)
      A concise overview is given of various numerical methods that can be used to analyse localisation and failure in engineering materials. The importance of the cohesive-zone approach is emphasised and various ways of ...
