RAPID PROPAGATION OF A CRACK IN A BRITTLE MATERIAL

In this report an attempt is described to apply the mechanics of the continuum to the problem of the propagation of a crack in a plate being in a one-dimensional state of stress by static external loads. It is necessary to assume that the crack has already reached the point where the rapid increase of velocity of propagation begins.
