Description

The behaviour of cracked concrete is hard to model with differential equations because that method relies on a hypothesis of material continuity, violated by the cracks. Peridynamic theory provides an alternative model that does not rely on material continuity, and the paper "An Explicit Method for Simulation of Cracking Structures Based on Peridynamic Theory" describes a numerical method to solve the peridynamics equations using a simple explicit scheme based on the Euler method, where the spatial discretisation consists of a finite set of material
particles and inter-particle bonds.

The dataset comprises tables of numerical results output by the proposed method, alongside comparator results from the Finite Element Method (FEM) and classical elastic theory. These tables were used to generate Figures 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, and 14 in the paper.
