  • Abstract : The virtual element method is a modern discretization scheme for solving boundary value problems on polytopal meshes, sparing the explicit knowledge of element shape functions. In the context of numerical fracture mechanics, crack tip loading analyses and in particular crack growth simulations benefit from its ability of handling arbitrary complex meshes straightforwardly. This work aims to discuss challenges and opportunities of implementing concepts of fracture mechanics in the context of the virtual element method.
