The main objective of this contribution is to develop a novel continuum-kinematics-inspired approach for peridynamics (PD), and to revisit PD’s thermodynamic foundations. We distinguish between three types of interactions, namely, one-neighbour interactions, two-neighbour interactions and three-neighbour interactions. While one-neighbour interactions are equivalent to the bond-based interactions of the original PD formalism, two- and three-neighbour interactions are fundamentally different to state-based interactions in that the basic elements of continuum kinematics are preserved exactly. In addition, we propose that an externally prescribed traction on the boundary of the continuum body emerges naturally and need not vanish. This is in contrast to, but does not necessarily violate, standard PD. We investigate the consequences of the angular momentum balance and provide a set of appropriate arguments for the interactions accordingly. Furthermore, we elaborate on thermodynamic restrictions on the interaction energies and derive thermodynamically-consistent constitutive laws through a Coleman–Noll-like procedure.
