Description: Peridynamics is a nonlocal formulation of continuum mechanics. The discrete peridynamic model has the same computational structure as a molecular dynamic model. This document details the implementation of a discrete peridynamic model within the LAMMPS molecular dynamic code. This document provides a brief overview of the peridynamic model of a continuum, then discusses how the peridynamic model is discretized, and overviews the LAMMPS implementation. A nontrivial example problem is also included.
