Description: Peridynamics is a nonlocal extension of classical continuum mechanics. The discrete peridynamic model has the same computational structure as a molecular dynamics model. This document provides a brief overview of the peridynamic model of a continuum, then discusses how the peridynamic model is discretized within LAMMPS. An example problem is also included.
