By Blaise Bourdin

Presenting unique effects from either theoretical and numerical viewpoints, this article deals a close dialogue of the variational method of brittle fracture. This method perspectives crack progress because the results of a contest among bulk and floor strength, treating crack evolution from its initiation all of the technique to the failure of a pattern. The authors version crack initiation, crack course, and crack extension for arbitrary geometries and loads.
