(Statistical) physics of quasi-brittle fracture: How to predict damaging in heterogeneous solids?
|Contact: BONAMY Daniel, , firstname.lastname@example.org, +33 1 69 08 21 14|
Anticipating when and how heterogeneous materials (rocks, wood or concrete for example) fail is central issue to many fields. This remains difficult - these materials start by damaging in a imperceptible manner, before breaking brutally. The aim here is to combine original experiments and simulations to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the formation of microcracks and their subsequent organization til the final ruin of the structure.
