Abstract:

Recent developments in fracture mechanics, both static and dynamic, are reviewed. These results are presented in order to spur exploitation of fracture mechanics in determining fracture criteria for rocks. Such considerations are important to improve computation predictions of ground motion due to explosions occurring at or near the earths surface as well as evaluation of containment of gas in a nucelar cavity.
