Such interactions have been studied and have shown under certain criteria that one or the other of the two fractures will arrest growth and not complete the fracture process [Kipp and Grady, 1985]. 23) has been proposed when conditions in the fracture process favor suﬃcient fracture initiation sites such that fracture interaction and competition processes governed by energy requirements determines the breakup intensity. Thus, like Lee’s elastic-plastic solution places a lower bound on the distance of interface propagation before Mott’s rigid-plastic solution is adequate, the present analysis places a lower bound on fracture spacing governing Mott’s instantaneous fracture assumption.

9. Expected value and standard deviation for strain-to-fracture with increasing values of the Weibull shape parameter n. The scale parameter is σ = 1 46 3 Physics-Based Statistical Methods then replaced by σ/l1/n illustrating the size dependence of fracture strength common to Weibull statistics. With reasonably high values of n the power-law hazard function and Weibull distribution quite adequately describe the several percent scatter in failure strain observed in metal tensile specimens. This analytic distribution thus provides a reasonable statistical representation for describing the multiple fragmentation process in rapidly stretching bodies such as the expanding ring illustrated in Fig.

A comparison of the cumulative and density fragment size distributions from the Mott distribution and the geometric cylinder segmentation distribution The plot in Fig. 11 compares the Mott distribution with the cylindrical segmentation algorithm proposed by Mott using the Voronoi algorithm for randomly distributing the partitioning lines and line segments. This ﬁgure corresponds to Fig. 4 in which the Mott distribution is compared with the random vertical and horizontal lines algorithm. A ﬁnal comparison is shown in Fig.
