Content: The aim of this thesis is the simulation of progressive damage in brittle materials due to cracking. With this aim, the mathematical crack model will be solved using the eXtended Finite Element Method for the spatial discretization and time integration schemes for the numerical integration in the time domain. The time integration schemes considered are the Generalized-α method, the continuous GALERKIN method and the discontinuous GALERKIN method.
