Static condensation is widely used as a model order reduction technique to reduce the computational effort and complexity of classical continuum-based computational models, such as finite-element models. Peridynamic theory is a nonlocal theory developed primarily to overcome the shortcoming of classical continuum-based models in handling discontinuous system responses. In this study, a model order reduction algorithm is developed based on the static condensation technique to reduce the order of peridynamic models. Numerical examples are considered to demonstrate the robustness of the proposed reduction algorithm in reproducing the static and dynamic response and the eigenresponse of the full peridynamic models.
