Peridynamics is used to model and simulate rolling contact fatigue problems in this paper. A damage model is implemented so that both crack initiation and crack propagation can be investigated. Although only the bond-based peridynamics is considered in this paper, the framework can be extended to the usage of state-based peridynamics.
