Abstract

Any loaded solid is a multiscale nonlinear system consisting of two subsystems: a planar subsystem (surface layers and all kinds of interfaces, including shear bands) and a crystalline one. Self-consistent plastic flow within the two subsystems is realized by nonlinear waves of local structural transformations. Fracture of a solid develops as its structure-phase decomposition in a nonlinear wave of localized plastic flow characterized by a positive Gibbs thermodynamic potential.
