Investigation of scenarios of fracture foci
formation in materials and media of different compozition and morphplpgy is
quite important for estimation of life cycle and resource of different
constructions as well as for prognosis of their fracture.
At present time the all-known fact is that all
materials and media including plastics, metals, ceramics, composites,
construction and building materials as well as geomedia and rocks represent the
multiscale nonlinear dynamic systems. Loaded solids and media as typical
nonlinear dynamic systems demonstrate the characteristic features of evolution:
the dynamic chaos, self-organized criticality, local and global loss of
stability starting from the formation of mesoscopic scale cracks up to the main
cracks. Theoretical and experimental investigation of features of stress-strain
state fluctuations near the middle-trend in different media (the jerky flow and
fracture of brittle specimens) showed its conformance to the Guttenberg-Richter
law. These facts prove the community of fracture scenarios both for materials
of different engineering constructions as well as geomedia at large scales and
specimens at small scales.
Studying deformation and fracture of materials
and media as nonlinear dynamic systems permits to excurse from private details
of internal structure and specific mechanisms of non-elastic strain and define
the most common characteristics of mechanical response near the critical states.
One of the central goals of investigation of mechanical response of loaded
solids and media as nonlinear dynamic systems is to identify the precursors of
transition to the superfast critical stage.
