We report on large scale numerical simulations of fracture surfaces using random fuse networks for two very different disorders. There are some properties and exponents that are different for the two distributions, but others, notably the roughness exponents, seem universal. For the universal roughness exponent we found a value of zeta = 0.62 +/- 0.05. In contrast to what is observed in two dimensions, this value is lower than that reported in experimental studies of brittle fractures, and… CONTINUE READING
