A thermodynamic energy approach is used to develop a unified theory of fracture relative to mechanical response of metals and alloys as a function of the atomic, and metallurgical structures and the phenomenological aggregate levels collectively. Fracture stable cracking and fracture dynamics unstable cracking are correlated in terms of the theory based upon the process of energy transformation and in terms of mechanical and thermal energy of the First Law of Thermodynamics.
