  • Fracture is one of the most prominent concerns for large scale applications of graphene. In this paper, we review some of the recent progresses in experimental and theoretical studies on the fracture behaviors of graphene, with discussions touching theoretical strength, mode I fracture toughness, mixed mode fracture, chemical fracture, irradiation fracture, dynamic fracture, impact fracture, and sonication fracture. In spite of rapid developments in experiments and simulations, there are still… CONTINUE READING
