A rapidly moving crack in a brittle material is often idealized1 as a one-dimensional object with a singular tip, moving through a two-dimensional material. However, in real three-dimensional materials, tensile cracks form a planar surface whose edge is a rapidly moving one-dimensional singular front. The dynamics of these fronts under repetitive interaction2,3,4 with material inhomogeneities (asperities) and the morphology5,6,7,8,9,10,11 of the fracture surface that they create are not yet… CONTINUE READING
