Stable crack growth in viscoelastic media

  • A. A. Kaminskii


It follows from the last two examples, that for unsteady creep, with the creep effect diminishing in time, the crack grows at a diminishing rate, and after a certain time crack growth comes almost completely to a stop. For steady creep, however, crack growth does not diminish, but proceeds at a constant rate. These conclusions are in good agreement with results obtained earlier by L. M. Kachanov [3, 4] and G. P. Cherepanov [12].
