EFE: Enriched Finite Element Formulations to Capture Cracks, Material Interfaces and Multiscale Phenomena

Minisymposium organized by

In recent years there has been a growing interest regarding the numerical modelling of fracture mechanical problems. For that purpose, several innovative approaches, using element or nodal enrichment strategies, were proposed. The aim of this minisymposium is to address all these enrichment techniques, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
