      Characterizing dynamic failure is critically important to a number of applications, among others including armor, material fragmentation, and structural blast. In brittle materials, this failure is driven by crack growth from pre-existing flaws in the material microstructure. * Nonlinear fracture mechanics (NLFM) and the latest RILEM modelingtechniques for testing nonlinear quasi-brittle materials * The use of R-Curves to describe cracking and fracture inquasi-brittle materials * The application of fracture mechanics to compression failure,creep, fatigue, .

[S P Shah] -- A variety of ceramic materials has been recently shown to exhibit nonlinear stress­ strain behavior. These materials include transformation-toughened zirconia which undergoes a stress-induced.

    Micromechanics of failure treats local conditions of failure that occur at about the micron scale. Often, however, the term “micromechanics” is used much more broadly as occurring over quite a wide range of small scales, but certainly far above the atomic scale and far below the macroscopic scale. Three major problems of failure at small scales are considered. A unidirectional fiber composite (UDC) consists of aligned continuous fibers that are embedded in a matrix. This article describes a variety of analytical methods that are used to determine the various physical properties of the UDC.

Then the development of micromechanics of rock damage is reviewed with particular focus on unilateral effects due to cracks' closure, damage-friction coupling, failure criterion and analytical solutions.

Some theoretical advances achieved at Hohai University, China are finally presented with application to typical quasi-brittle rocks. The field of composite materials is the recognized marketplace for such works. For example, the book “Mechanics of Composite Materials”, Christensen [1], is largely given over to the micromechanics analysis of particulate and fibrous reinforcement of a continuous matrix phase.

The objective in most books is to determine the effective stiffness. The theory of micro-mechanics of failure aims to explain the failure of continuous fiber reinforced composites by micro-scale analysis of stresses within each constituent material (such as fiber and matrix), and of the stresses at the interfaces between those constituents, calculated from the macro stresses at the ply level.

As a completely mechanics-based failure theory, the theory is. New developments in the applications of fracture mechanics to engineering problems have taken place in the last years.

Composite materials have extensively been used in engineering problems. Quasi-brittle materials including concrete, cement pastes, rock, soil, etc. all benefit from these developments. Layered materials and especially thin film/substrate systems are becoming.

The key point of micromechanics of materials is the localization, which aims at evaluating the local (stress and strain) fields in the phases for given macroscopic load states, phase properties, and phase geometries.

Such knowledge is especially important in understanding and describing material damage and failure. Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials is the first in-depth text on the application of fracture mechanics to the analysis of failure in concrete structures.

The book synthesizes a vast number of recent research results in the literature to provide a comprehensive treatment of the topic that does not give merely the facts - it provides true understanding.

The micromechanics of failure was developed to predict the failure of continuous fiber reinforced composites. A micromechanical approach using unit cells of square and hexagonal arrays was employed to compute the micro stresses of constituents and at the fiber—matrix interface, which were used to determine the failure initiation of a unidirectional ply.
