Statistical models of brittle deformation - Part I: Introduction

D Krajcinovic and S Mastilovic, INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PLASTICITY, 15, 401-426 (1999).

DOI: 10.1016/S0749-6419(98)00067-9

The first part of this study focuses on the statistical mechanics underpinning of the lattice model and its relation to micromechanical and continuum models. The emphasis of the discussion is centered on the brittle and quasi-brittle deformations of materials with disordered microstructure and modest cohesive strength. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd.
