A two-dimensional peridynamic model for thin plates
A general plate model based on the peridynamic theory of solid mechanics is presented. The model is derived as a two-dimensional approximation of the three-dimensional bond-based theory of peridynamics via an asymptotic analysis. The resulting plate theory is demonstrated using a specially designed peridynamics code to simulate the fracture of a brittle plate with a central crack under tensile loading.
