Short Description : The goal of my PhD is to improve the modelling of damage and fracture in complex materials under large deformation using the in-house nonlinear Finite Element software Metafor. The strategy adopted consists in developing an automatic h-adaptive mesh refinement algorithm called “fission-fusion”, where elements can be split or merged when needed. This algorithm will then be combined with the already operational erosion algorithm and Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian formulation, and with a multiscale finite element squared approach currently under development.
