    • Abstract


      A thermodynamic analysis of the process of fracture in elastically deformable composites is formulated. The critical dimensions leading either to particle fracture or to matrix-particle decohesion are identified. Fracture in plastically deformable composites is discussed in the light of the experimental evidence regarding void or cavity nucleation. Models of void growth under the application of stress and the role of void growth in causing failure are described in brief.
