Incubation Time Based Description of Dynamic Fracture Processes
A.V. Kashtanov

Last modified: 2013-05-07


The fundamentals of incubation time approach in fracture dynamic problems will be outlined. The
continual (kinetic) formulation of incubation time based fracture dynamics will be discussed. It
provides the investigation of microscale incubation processes anticipating the macrofracture event
as well as the dynamic-strength criterion at the macroscale. The abilities of proposed approach in
description of dynamic crack propagation process will be considered.
