Shekhawat, Sethna & Zapperi develop unified theory of fracture

Different types of crack formation predicted to occur in a brittle solid when the size of the system or the amount of disorder is varied.

Clean materials like glasses break abruptly. Complex materials like bones and seashells develop many small damaged regions (microcracks) before breaking.
