  • [2011-02-09] A Critical Evaluation of Computational Fracture Using a Smeared Crack Approach in MPM 

    Sanchez, Jason
    An evaluation of the smeared crack representation of material failure using the material-point method (MPM) as a feasible computational failure approach is performed. The spatial descretization in MPM is defined ...
  • [2015-09-01] Improving the Material Point Method 

    Gong, Ming
    The material point method (MPM) was designed to solve problems in solid mechanics, and it has been used widely in research and industry. In MPM, the equations of motion are solved on a background grid and Lagrangian material ...
