Fractality of Fracture Surfaces

T. Ficker


A recently published fractal model of the fracture surfaces of porous materials is discussed, and a series of explanatory remarks are added. The model has revealed a functional dependence of the compressive strength of porous materials on the fractal dimension of fracture surfaces. This dependence has also been confirmed experimentally. The explanatory remarks provide a basis for better establishing the model.
