Scientific discussion meeting organised by Dr Kevin Kendall FRS, Professor Anthony Kinloch 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 will reflect 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 will be available shortly. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
