Revisiting brittle fracture as an energy minimization problem. (English) Zbl 0966.74060
Summary: We propose a variational model of quasistatic crack evolution. Although close in spirit to Griffith’s theory of brittle fracture, the proposed model, however, frees itself from the usual constraints of that theory: a preexisting crack and a well-defined crack path. In contrast, crack initiation as well as crack path can be quantified, as demonstrated on explicitly computable examples. Furthermore, the model lends itself to numerical implementation in more complex settings.
