Fracture Simulation of Structural Glass by Element Deletion in Explicit FEM

J. Pelfrene, S. Van Dam, R. Sevenois, F. Gilabert & W. Van Paepegem
In finite element simulation of glass cracking for practical engineering problems, the method of element deletion is often used despite its shortcomings. With this technique, an element is removed from the system upon reaching a certain failure criterion. Many different formulations for the failure behaviour of an element are possible, differentiated by the physical correctness of their representation and by their implications on the numerical stability of the calculation. In this paper, three failure models...
