QUASI-STATIC CRACK PROPAGATION BY GRIFFITH'S CRITERION

Abstract:

We consider the propagation of a crack in a brittle material along a prescribed crack path and define a quasi-static evolution by means of stationary points of the free energy. We show that this evolution satisfies Griffith's criterion in a suitable form which takes into account both stable and unstable propagations, as well as an energy balance formula which accounts for dissipation in the unstable regime. If the load is monotonically increasing, this solution is explicit and almost everywhe...
