During a NATO complex research Institute in Izmir, Tur­ key, July 1973 on glossy advancements in Engineering Seis­ mology and Earthquake Engineering it emerged debate on Continuum Mechanics facets of Geodynamics and Rock Fracture Mechanics will be very welcome. as a result, it was once determined to hunt NATO sponsorship for a complicated learn In­ stitute in this topic. the aim of the hot complex examine Institute used to be to supply a hyperlink among mechanics of continuum media and geo­ dynamic s. via bringing jointly a bunch of top scientists from the above fields and individuals actively engaged in study and functions within the comparable fields, it used to be believed that fruitful discussions may possibly emerge to facilitate an alternate of data, event and newly-conceived principles. The Institute aimed essentially on the answer of such difficulties as hooked up with the learn of rigidity and pressure con­ ditions within the Earth, customary factors of earthquakes, power liberate and focal mechanism and seismic wave propagation in­ troducing smooth equipment of continuum and rock fracture mechanics. Secondly to encourage scientists operating in continuum mechanics to open new avenues of analysis hooked up with the above difficulties, and seismologists to evolve sleek, complicated tools of continuum and rock fracture mechanics to their work.

Example text

Upon loading, some inelastic deformations will develop around the edge of the crack. This toroidal region along the crack front in which all the energy dissipation is assumed to take place will be called the "fracture process zone". Let the characteristic size of the crack and the process zone size be a and p, respectively. If p « a, then it is reasonable to assume that the energy (U-V) "pumped" into the fracture zone will come from the elastic bulk of the solid and therefore will not be critically dependent on the stress state in the close neighborhood of the crack periphery.

INTRODUCTION When a solid is subjected to a certain system of external loads under a given set of environmental conditions, in most cases the response is simply one of deformation in the sense that topologically the medium remains unchanged. In this case, at least conceptually, the solution of the problem presents no difficulty, that is, after the appropriate material characterization it can be formulated as an initial-boundary value problem and all the desired field quantities may be obtained upon solving the related field equations.
