Manuscript Topics
In the wide spectrum of numerical simulations, computational modeling of material failure is one of the most challenging and important research fields. In industry, it is critical for engineers to be able to simulate different material failure phenomena including ductile rupture, brittle fracture and more complicated failure modes for a variety of engineering materials. Material failure analysis via reliable computational method can help engineers to understand underlying material behavior issues or mistakes made in the design, modeling, manufacturing and analysis of complex engineering systems.

In the past few years, the advanced numerical simulations of material failure problems are in great demand for various industrial applications and have attracted increasing attention in computational mechanics and material science. In particular, multiscale and multiphysics failure analyses have provided significant advantages in the modeling of complex material systems, which also drive the development of new theories and advanced numerical techniques to achieve acceptable predictive capability in a robust and efficient manner.

This special issue aims at providing a platform for publishing original articles and reviews on recent progress and applications of computational material failure analysis. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

• New development of theory and formulation in damage and fracture mechanics, such as non-local or gradient damage, phase-field fracture and bond-based fracture.
• Novel numerical/discretization techniques for modeling damage and discontinuities, such as XFEM/GFEM, Peridynamics, meshfree and particle methods.
• Multiscale and multiphysics simulations of material failure and related techniques.
• Data-driven methods related to modeling of multiscale material failure behavior.
• Experimental validation and uncertainty quantification in simulation and modeling.
• Industrial applications with material degradation and failure.
• High-performance computing for large-scale failure analysis.
