This chapter presents a summary of the information and reasoning needed to justify learning about peridynamics for the purpose of analyzing electromigration and provides guidance for the development of a complete peridynamics analysis. The additions needed to convert the original peridynamics model as developed for mechanics problems to a multiphysics model capable of treating electromigration are reviewed. Experimental data on void drift by electromigration are introduced to provide a specific target for a demonstration of the peridynamical ...
