Peristatic solutions for finite one- and two-dimensional systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Peridynamics is a nonlocal continuum mechanics theory where its governing equation has an integro-differential form. This paper specifically uses bond-based peridynamics. Typically, peridynamic problems are solved via numerical means, and analytical solutions are not as common. This paper analytically evaluates peristatics, the static version of peridynamics, for a finite one-dimensional rod as well as a special case for two dimensions. A numerical method is also implemented to confirm the analytical results.
