About this book


All materials contain numerous defects, such as microcracks, microvoids, inhomogeneities, dislocations, etc., which precede possible fracture. Thus mathematical modeling becomes necessary. This volume contains some introductory material, aspects of fracture mechanics, the theory of crystal defects, computational micromechanics, and the heterogenization methodology.
