about this item

The Material Point Method systematically introduces the theory, the code design, and the application of the material point method. The Subjects covered include, the spatial and the temporal discretization of MPM, frequently-used strength models and equations of state of materials, contact algorithms in MPM, adaptive MPM, hybrid/coupled material point finite element method, object-oriented programming of MPM, and the application of MPM in impact , explosion, and metal forming. Recent progresses are also stated in this monograph, which include the improvement of the efficiency, memory storage, coupling/ combination with the finite element method, contact algorithm and the application in problems under extreme loading developed in the authors’ group.

  • A user’s guide and several numerical examples of the MPM3D-F90 code are presented, for which the input data files can be downloaded from our website:
  • Constitutive models which describe different types of material behaviors, with a focus on extreme events. The computer implementation of these constitutive models is specified and corresponding source codes are provided
  • Applications of MPM and its extensions in extreme events such as transient crack propagation, impact/penetration, blast, fluid-structure interaction, and biomechanical responses to extreme loading
