Abstract

The backbone of a numerical technique for the simulation of self-healing mechanisms is the cohesive segements method. This method, which is based on the partition of unity method, allows for the simulation of multiple interacting cracks in a heterogeneous medium, irrespective of the structure of the finite element mesh. In this paper, a concise overview of the cohesive segments method is given. The performance of the method is illustrated with an example.
