The peridynamic model is a new theory of continuum mechanics that is specifically oriented toward modeling problems in which cracks or other discontinuities emerge spontaneously as a body deforms under load. In this study, a code that implements this theory, EMU, is applied to the Kalthoff-Winkler dynamic single-fracture experiment in a tough steel specimen.
