Abstract: A virtual internal bond (VIB) model is proposed recently in mechanical engineering literatures for simulating dynamic fracture. The model is a nonlinear wave equation of mixed type (hyperbolic or elliptic). There is instability in the elliptic region and usual numerical methods might not work. We examine the artificial viscosity method for the model and apply central type schemes directly to the corresponding viscous system to ensure appropriate numerical viscous term for such a mixed type problem. We provide a formal justification of indicating convergence of the scheme despite the difficulty of the type change. The exact solution of a Riemann problem is used to demonstrate the numerical method for one-dimensional case. We then generalize the method to a two-dimensional material with a triangular or hexagonal lattice structure. Computational results for a two-dimensional example are given. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
