Cleavage Fracture

The applied cleavage fracture model strictly applies only to the transition region of the material although the model also includes a term to take into account the conditional probability of crack propagation This term is needed because in and near the lower shelf the fracture event is mainly controlled by crack propagation and therefore cannot be correctly described by only the crack...
