Abstract : The subject theory combines new methods for the computation of machine parts and equipment components with a consideration of phenomena significantly affected by the structural inhomogeneousness of technological materials ( the process of fracture, scale effect, etc.). A characteristic feature of the new methods is the application of mathematical statistics and probability concepts. The new strength theory and its practical application is developed in the mechanical engineering field… 
Statistical theories of crack propagation
The mechanism of crack growth in rocks has been the subject of much recent interest, not only on account of its engineering importance, but also as a background to the study of precursory phenomena
Deformation and Damage of Composites with Anisotropic Components (Review)
A statistical model describing the coupled deformation and damage of composites with porous transversely isotropic and orthotropic components is proposed. The mechanism of microdamage of such
Deformation and long-term damage of homogeneous and composite materials of stochastic structure (Review)
The studies of mathematical models for the coupled processes of deformation and long-time damage of stochastic composite materials are systematized. Damage is modeled by stochastically arranged
Deformation and damage of composite materials of stochastic structure: physically nonlinear problems (Review)
The studies on the theory of deformation and short- and long-term damage of physically nonlinear homogeneous and composite materials are systematized. In the case of short-term damage, a single
Devolopment of Microstructure Damage in Structurally Heterogeneous Materials under Deformation
The proposed model represents a micro-heterogeneous medium with random properties of elastic-brittle microstructure elements and with fractures forming during the deformation of structurally
Deformation and damage of linear elastic homogeneous and composite materials (review)
The studies on the deformation and short- and long-term damage of homogeneous and composite materials are systematized. In the case of short-term damage, a single microdamage is modeled by an empty
