The purpose of this Phase II project is to develop computational modeling methods that are able to describe the propagation and interaction of fatigue cracks using the phase-field methodology within the numerical framework of isogeometric analysis (IGA). The resulting computational platform, while focused on fracture and fatigue, will be general, in that any phase-field method can be easily incorporated into the system. Of particular interest will be the development of high-performance isogeometric adaptivity algorithms in the context of complex Computer-Aided Design (CAD) geometry.
