Renormalizations in solid and fracture mechanics

H. D. Bui

Vol. 3 (2008), No. 5, 853–866
Abstract

We show how some inconsistencies and infinities arising in solid and fracture mechanics can be avoided by renormalization techniques widely used in theoretical physics. Some examples, already known in solid mechanics or recently discovered in fracture mechanics, are given as illustrations.
