Abstract
Crack initiation and propagation is an essential aspect in the mechanical behavior of a large variety of materials and structures in all fields of Engineering and, in particular, the prediction of crack trajectories is one of the major challenges of existing numerical methods. Classical procedures to fix crack direction have been based on local criteria such as maximum (tensile) hope stress. However, Fracture Mechanics principles suggest that global criteria should be used instead, such as maxim...
