Scaling properties of crack branching and brittle fragmentation
Institute of Continuous Media Mechanics RAS, 1 Ak. Korolev str., 614013 Perm, Russia
The present study is focused on the correlation of scaling properties of crack branching and brittle fragmentation with damage accumulation and a change in the fracture mechanism. The experimental results obtained from the glass fragmentation tests indicate that the size distribution of fragments has a fractal character and is described by a power law.
