A CRITICAL REVIEW OF THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF FRACTURE MECHANICS WITH EMPHASIS ON LAYERED ROCKS

Creative Commons Attribution



This paper presents results of a literature survey of over 70 pertinent publications and critical reviews of fracture mechanics emphasizing the fracture behavior of layered rocks. Historical perspective, fracture mechanisms, linear and nonlinear fracture mechanics, energy theories, ductile and brittle fractures, process regions, specific work of fracture, J-integrals, failure theories, static and dynamic fractures, rock fracture mechanics, fracture toughness of layered rocks (e.g., oil shale), experimental and numerical methods are reviewed and discussed. Innovative and premising methods tailored for the fracture mechanics of layered rocks are recommended.
