    ABSTRACT: Peridynamics is a recently developed formulation for continuum mechanics which describes material deformation using a nonlocal approach. Unlike Classical Continuum Mechanics (CCM) where the conservation equations are cast into partial differential equations, Peridynamics describes the deformation in terms of integro-differential equations. Additionally, peridynamics permits a natural length scale that is absent in CCM. This facilitates the modeling of complex material behavior and fracture which is not dependent on the numerical discretization length scale. In this paper, we develop a Peridynamic formulation for a Timoshenko beam. Full details and numerical examples are presented for both bending and axial behavior. While the development in this paper is limited to elastic, infinitesimal deformations, the approach can be extended to finite inelastic deformations.
