    Peridynamic theory was first introduced by Dr. S. A. Silling at Sandia National Laboratories, USA, in the year of 2000. It is a state-of-the-art technique which is relatively new and promising tool [1]. It is basically re-formulation of classical continuum mechanics theory introduced by A. L. Cauchy more than 200 years ago. The volumetric integral, which does not include spatial derivatives, is used in its formulations.
