On the Probabilistic-Deterministic Transition Involved in a Fragmentation Process of Brittle Materials

Abstract : Dynamic loadings produce high stress waves leading to the fragmentation of brittle materials such as ceramics, concrete, glass and rocks. The main mechanism used to explain the change of the number of fragments with stress rate is a shielding phenomenon. However, under quasi-static loading conditions, a weakest link hypothesis may be applicable. Therefore, depending on the local strain or stress rate, different fragmentation regimes are observed. One regime corresponds to single fragmentation for which a probabilistic approach is needed. Conversely, the multiple fragmentation regime may be described by a deterministic approach. The transition between the two fragmentation regimes is discussed for high performance concrete, glass and SiC ceramics.
