PeriDynamics (PD) is a new non-local theory of continuum which is suitable for studying damage and fracture of materials. In fact, the governing equations defined by peridynamics are integro-differential equations that do not contain any spatial derivatives, making this new theory very attractive for dealing with problems that include discontinuities in the analyzed domain, such as cracks, voids etc. Several numerical methods, such as Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM), have been developed in the last decades for studying the fracture, many of which are based on Classic Theory of Mechanics (CTM). Such methods suffer of numerous drawbacks since the spatial derivatives included in the governing equations cannot be defined in proximity of discontinuities. This limitation can only be overcome by adding ad-hoc equations, making the formulation extremely complex, especially when fracture patterns in 3D domains may be predicted. In order to overcome these limitations of CTM-based numerical methods, the new theory of continuum, PD was recently developed with the intention to remove the spatial derivatives from the governing equations. Moreover, PD can be considered as the continuum version of molecular dynamics since particles can interact with each other if enclosed within a certain distance called horizon. This character of PD makes this new approach a suitable candidate for multi-scale analysis of materials. Furthermore, PD formulation can also be extended to other fields such as thermal, moisture, so that it can be used as a single framework for multiphysics analysis of materials. This work aims to implement PD by using the Finite Element Software (FES) MSC Patran/Nastran in order to predict the dynamic crack propagation in brittle materials. The PD model can be easily generated in Patran by means of in-house codes developed in Matlab environment, followed by the application of boundary conditions in FES. Several numerical simulations are carried out for 2D cases under dynamic loading, therefore, the results are compared with benchmark problems available in literature and the numerical results simulated by means of XFEM tool available in Abaqus software.
