The Mathematics and Engineering Analysis unit of The Boeing Company supports this research project on the development and implementation of numerical methods for peridynamic modeling. It is intended to help modeling structural damage and crack growth in complex materials. It is part of Boeing's commercial aircraft programs.
The peridynamic model is rather a new approach in non-local elasticity theory to cope with discontinuities. The governing equation is a nonlinear partial integro-differential equation without spatial derivatives that has to be solved numerically. Relying on the quadrature formula method, an improved meshfree spatial approximation shall be constructed and tested within this project. The new numerical method shall then enhance an existing parallel code that is employed in simulations of aircraft material damages due to hail impact, bird strike or similar impacts.
