Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Kevin Kendall FRS, Professor Anthony Kinloch FREng FRS, Professor Neil Alford MBE FREng and Dr Siva Bohm.
In the 100 years since Griffith published his ground-breaking paper on the energy criterion for cracking, there have been great advances in the understanding of cracks. This meeting reflected on recent observations in the field plus interesting new theories of cracking, as well as discussing how to invent tough new materials, while removing problems in Fracture Mechanics.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies and abstracts are available below. An accompanying journal issue has been published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
