Automatic Insertion of Cohesive Zones / Cracks (2D and 3D)

Using MultiMech™, two- or three-dimensional cohesive zones (cracks) can be automatically inserted in the finite element mesh “on-the-fly” (during the analysis) without pre-defining crack paths, allowing advanced modeling of crack formation and propagation. A number of cohesive zone models are available, including elastic and viscoelastic cohesive zone constitutive models.
