In the present paper, the distributed dislocation technique is extended for crack problems within Eringen’s theory of nonlocal elasticity of Helmholtz type.

Highly anisotropic materials like wood and unidirectional polymer composite structures are sensitive to shear deformations, in particular close to fixed joints. Large wooden structures in buildings and, e.g. wind-turbine blades, are designed to last for decades, and hence are susceptible to unwanted creep deformations. For improved structural desig...

Hydrogen embrittlement is a classical problem in bulk materials while it is rather untouched for advanced materials such as micro-architectured materials.
