Title Dynamical damage and phase-field fracture
Abstract Damage is a phenomenon/concept in continuum mechanics of solids with numerous applications. Various damage models and their variants as a phase-field fracture will be overviewed. Also, several numerical approaches will be presented, amenable to compute vibrations or waves emitted during fast damage/fracture, together with various extensions of the basic scenario, combining mass or heat transfer, plasticity, or fluid interactions.
