Ergodynamic concept of failure. 1. Basic statements of the ergodynamics of deformed bodies. Criteria of failure ductility

  • V. V. Fedorov
Scientific-Technical Section


We briefly examine the fundamental statements relative to the ergodynamic concept of failure, thermodynamic criteria, and the condition of local failure, the interrelationships between the processes of deformation and failure, as well as the primary and energy criteria of local failure. Methods are developed for the prognostication of failure ductility criteria to account for the physicochemical nature and structure of a material, as well as loading conditions.
