Crack Propagation using Material Point Method and J-integral
This project combines Material Point Method with J-integral to calculate crack tip parameters which are used to determine the crack propagation. This is implemented as a custom solver in Houdini and the solver is used to create a Houdini Digital Asset. The developed asset provides a user to simulate a reasonable crack propagation with some user controls.
