Virtual element method (VEM) for phase-field modeling of brittle and ductile fracture

Funding:  DFG SPP 1748

An efficient low order virtual element method (VEM) for the phase field modeling of brittle and ductile fracture is analyzed at IKM. The recently developed VEM is a competitive discretization scheme for meshes with highly irregular shaped elements.
