About these proceedings
The general objective of the Tenth Canadian Fracture Conference was to respond to progress in the engineering sciences - in particular with r- pect to rapidly developing new trends in the theory and methodology of researcr and designing - and to the resulting needs of practical engineering in the specific field of fracture mechanics and related areas of engineering mechanics. The basic underlying issue is the theory and practice of physical analytical and iconic (reduced) modelling of the actually involved physical processes and of the responses of physical bodies and systems to actual energy flow - a problem which is becoming dominant in all fields of the natural sciences. Accordingly, the theme of the CFCIO was "Modelling Problems in Crack Tip Mechanics", a well defined and limited subject, the scope of treatment of which can be as deep and as comprehensive as an in volved researcher wishes it to be.
