Corrosion Damage and Corrosion-Assisted Fracture: Peridynamic Modelling and Computations covers cutting-edge developments in predicting corrosion damage and its influence on reducing material ductility, which can lead to crack nucleation, propagation, and final failure. The computational simulations included in the book match detailed experimental observations of corrosion damage and cracking induced by corrosion, and are enabled by a state-of-the-art peridynamic framework for modeling complex phenomena involving material dissolution, fracture, and damage in a unified way.  The book provides a modeling framework that can be validated against experiments and delivers predictive results for corrosion-induced damage and fracture. A companion website features simulation movies of the modeling techniques and material corrosion, and also features code with which readers can directly test or even expand on the methods covered in the book.

Key Features

  • Outlines mathematical and computational modeling techniques for coupled corrosion damage and fracture processes
  • Discusses methods which provide a platform for development of the next generation of predictive tools in corrosion
  • Features a companion website with simulation movies to enhance understanding of the modeling techniques
  • Provides an inside view into the progression of corrosion damage and corrosion-induced fracture
