Overview

Contains 55 papers from the June 2001 symposium on the fracture of non-homogeneous materials that are inhomogeneous at the macroscopic level or exhibit strain softening. The contributors report recent advances in applying micro-mechanical modeling, macroscopic analysis, and meso-scale lattice modeling to reveal the micro-mechanisms underlying fracture, and explore the role of inhomogeneities, interfaces, scaling laws, and non-local effects. Other topics include the effect of inhomogeneous rock properties on the stability of well bores, the viscoelastic fracture and indentation of sea ice, fiber failure due to thermal stresses in polymer-based composites, and modeling of R-curves from measured bridging laws.
