The evaluation of crack initiation and growth at microscopic scale is a crucial issue for the safety assessment of macroscopical fractures. In the present paper, the crack propagation in 17Mn1Si steel macroscale is investigated by taking into account the microstructural damage accumulation in polycrystalline solids. The revealed regularities are in good agreement with the concept of physical mesomechanics, which allows obtaining a generalized view of the material deformation and the failure process in the vicinity of the concentrator, which fulfills the limiting, initial and physical conditions and allows obtaining the generalized regularities in deformation and failure of 17Mn1Si steel.
