The work performed in the first three-month period has been focused on Task 1.1 and Task 2.1 described in the project proposal. The activities related to Task 1.1 are a computational micromechanics failure analysis of a representative volume element containing disordered fiber distributions. Task 2.1 is concerned with damage evolution in a peridynamic model of poroelastic materials. Initial results for both tasks are reported and the ongoing work is outlined.
