Existence et approximation pour des modèles variationnels de rupture fragile/Existence and approximation for variational models of brittle fracture

Antonin Chambolle (Ecole Polytechnique, France)


We will present recent results obtained in collaboration with S. Conti (U. Bonn), G. Francfort (U. Paris-Nord), V. Crismale (E. Polytechnique, Palaiseau) and F. Iurlano (U. Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris) on the brittle fracture model of Francfort and Marigo (1998), which is a variational version of Griffith's classical model to predict crack growth. We will discuss existence of minimizers for the static problem, phase-field approximation and the issue of non-interpenetration.
