Included is a presentation of configurational forces within a classical context and a discussion of their use in areas as diverse as phase transitions and fracture.In previous chapters, v and V designated vector and scalar velocity fields for an evolving interface, while ai signified the time derivative following the interface. ... CHAPTER 25 Cracked Bodies The discussion begins with smooth cracks.
