This book deals with the most recent numerical modeling of adhesive joints. Advances in damage mechanics and extended finite element method are described in the context of the Finite Element method with examples of application. The book also introduces the classical continuum mechanics and fracture mechanics approach and discusses the boundary element method and the finite difference method with indication of the cases they are most adapted to. At the moment there a no numerical technique that can solve any problem and the analyst needs to be aware of the limitations involved in each case.Lucas Filipe Martins da Silva, Raul D. S. G. Campilho. other issues, such as coarse meshing, singularities or intersecting cracks are partially solved by a bigger mesh refinement. ... AbaqusA, as an example, gives the user three main possibilities (AbaqusA Documentation 2009): (1) viscous regularization, (2) automaticanbsp;...
