Crack path in an amorphous material in the quasi static limit

  • Robb Thomson (a1)

Abstract

Crack path stability is discussed, and it is shown that the standard continuum mechanics -force on a crack is the correct driving force for a crack. In a glass, where all cleavage planes are possible, this criterion also implies a path where the local Mode II on the crack is nullified.
