Research Highlight

Aug 21, 2017: Understanding brittle crack behaviors to design stronger materials

In a paper appearing in Nature Physics, Alain Karma and his postdoctoral associate Chih-Hung Chen together with Eran Bouchbinder of the Weizmann Institute of Science reported new computational results that answer the long standing question of why ultra-high speed cracks become unstable before reaching their theoretical limiting speed when they spread in brittle materials.
