Conference paper


The so called J integral has played an important role in the enormous strides that have been made in the past 15 years or so in the subject of the mechanics of fracture. However it is now well understood that the J integral is valid theoretically, only in the context of incipient crack growth in (nonlinear) elastic materials under quasi-static conditions.
