On a One-dimensional Model of the Fracture Process
Several aspects of that analogy are discussed: the possible fracture criteria, steady-state motion of the rod extracted from the medium at a constant velocity, sudden start and stopping of motion; in conclusion the paper presents a representation of steady-state solution in terms of superposition of the waves produces by “elementary fractures”.
