This book provides readers with an incisive look at cutting-edge peridynamic modeling methods, numerical techniques, their applications, and potential future directions for the field. It starts with an introductory chapter authored by Stewart Silling, who originally developed peridynamics. It then looks at new concepts in the field, with chapters covering dual-horizon peridynamics, peridynamics for axisymmetric analysis, beam and plate models in peridynamics, coupled peridynamics and XFEM, peridynamics for dynamic fracture modeling, and more. From there, it segues into coverage of cutting-edge applications of peridynamics, exploring its biological applications, modeling at the nanoscale, peridynamics for composites delamination and damage in ceramics, and more, concluding with a chapter on the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning in peridynamics.
