On the mott derivation of crack velocity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


Using the experimental result that a crack begins its dynamic elongation at a length which is larger than that given by the Griffith criterion, a new Mott-like velocity dependence on crack length is obtained. This relation is shown to possess several advantages, which include, among others, the possibility of being integrated and an asymptotic approach to the original Mott relation.
