  1. On Griffith’s criterion for brittle fracture « Entertaining Research Says:

    […] more information on the man and his achievements. In this blog post, which is part of my monthly Classics in Materials Science series, I would like to discuss Griffith’s paper (with quotes from the paper itself — as […]
