FRACTURE MECHANICS: A SUMMARY OF ITS AIMS AND METHODS

The strength of fracture mechanics is the separation of geometrical features from mechanical properties in the presence of cracks, so that unique values are defined for given circumstances, and these can then be used in assessing the behaviour of components. If offers a logical basis for extrapolations into hitherto unused sizes of components or strength ranges of materials.
