Abstract
This paper presents a family of phase-field models for the coupled simulation of the microstructure formation and evolution, and the nucleation and propagation of cracks in single and polycrystalline ferroelectric materials. The first objective is to introduce a phase-field model for ferroelectric single crystals. The model naturally couples two existing energetic phase-field approaches for brittle fracture and ferroelectric domain formation and evolution. Simulations show the interactions betw...
