In this paper, we exploit the use of peridynamics theory for graphical animation of material deformation and fracture. We present a new meshless framework for elastoplastic constitutive modelling that contrasts with previous approaches in graphics. Our peridynamics‐based elastoplasticity model represents deformation behaviours of materials with high realism. We validate the model by varying the material properties and performing comparisons with finite element method (FEM) simulations. The integral‐based nature of peridynamics makes it trivial to model material discontinuities, which outweighs differential‐based methods in both accuracy and ease of implementation. We propose a simple strategy to model fracture in the setting of peridynamics discretization. We demonstrate that the fracture criterion combined with our elastoplasticity model could realistically produce ductile fracture as well as brittle fracture. Our work is the first application of peridynamics in graphics that could create a wide range of material phenomena including elasticity, plasticity, and fracture. The complete framework provides an attractive alternative to existing methods for producing modern visual effects.
