Title: Modeling shockwaves and impact phenomena with Eulerian peridynamics

Abstract

Most previous development of the peridynamic theory has assumed a Lagrangian formulation, in which the material model refers to an undeformed reference configuration. Here, an Eulerian form of material modeling is developed, in which bond forces depend only on the positions of material points in the deformed configuration. The formulation is consistent with the thermodynamic form of the peridynamic model and is derivable from a suitable expression for the free energy of a material. We show that the resulting formulation of peridynamic material models can be used to simulate strong shock waves and fluid response in which very large deformations make the Lagrangian form unsuitable. The Eulerian capability is demonstrated in numerical simulations of ejecta from a wavy free surface on a metal subjected to strong shock wave loading. The Eulerian and Lagrangian contributions to bond force can be combined in a single material model, allowing strength and fracture under tensile or shear loading to be modeled consistently with high compressive stresses. Furthermore, we demonstrate this capability in numerical simulation of bird strike against an aircraft, in which both tensile fracture and high pressure response are important.

  • A non-local formulation of classical continuum mechanics theory known as peridynamics is used to study fracture initiation and growth from a wellbore penetrating the subsurface within the context of propellant-based stimulation. The principal objectives of this work are to analyze the influence of loading conditions on the resulting fracture pattern, to investigate the effect of in-situ stress anisotropy on fracture propagation, and to assess the suitability of peridynamics for modeling complex fracture formation. In peridynamics, the momentum equation from the classical theory of solid mechanics is replaced by a non-local analogue, which results in an integrodifferential conservation equation. A continuummore » material is discretized with a set of material points that interact with all other points within a specified distance. Interactions between points are governed by bonds that can deform and break depending on loading conditions. The accumulated breakage of bonds gives rise to a picture of complex growth of fractures that is seen as a key advantage in the peridynamic representation of discontinuities. It is shown that the loading rate significantly influences the number and ex- tent of fractures initiated from a borehole. Results show that low loading rates produce fewer but longer fractures, whereas high loading rates produce numerous shorter fractures around the borehole. The numerical method is able to predict fracture growth patterns over a wide range of loading and stress conditions. Our results also show that fracture growth is attenuated with increasing in-situ confining stress, and, in the case of confining stress anisotropy, fracture extensions are largest in the direction perpendicular to the minimum compressive stress. Since the results are in broad qualitative agreement with experimental and numerical studies found in the literature, suggesting that peridynamics can be a powerful tool in the study of complex fracture network formation.« less
