Summary The experimental work described in this paper was carried out in order to discover more about the laws governing the effect of the stress system on brittle fracture, with particular reference to rocks. Consideration of the implications of Griffith's theory of brittle fracture when an arbitrary, uniform plane stress system is applied (Murrell 1964a, b) enabled a number of fracture criteria to be postulated for triaxial stress conditions which required experimental investigation. An… CONTINUE READING
