Fracto-emissions in catastrophic cleavage process

Honglai Tan, Wei Yang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Fracto-emissions accompanying crack propagation are observed in the recent experiments. The energy impulses during and after fracture stimulate the fracto-emissions. Model concerning atomic scale cleavage processes is proposed to formulate a catastrophic fracture theory relevant to these phenomena. A criterion for catastrophic jump of the cleavage potential is applied to representative crystals.
