Unified Model for Fracture of Brittle Solids
A unified model for fracture of brittle solid based on crack opening displacement is presented. The model allows the prediction of elastic and fracture response of brittle materials containing spherical and cylindrical pores and polycrystalline solids containing anisotropic residual stresses. The analysis can also be used to predict spontaneous cracking and fracture of two phase systems possessing mismatch stresses.
