The ergodynamic concept of fracture. Communication 3. Structure and criteria of fracture toughness

  • V. V. Fedorov
Scientific-Technical Section


The article examines the correlation of fracture toughness with the structure of the material. It suggests ergodynamic methods of predicting criteria of fracture toughness taking the structure of the material and the conditions of loading into account. A possible structural mechanism of crack nucleation and growth is described.
