Abstract:The numerical results of simulations of a N-ary fragmentation process are presented. Its main assumptions are: Continuous bi-dimensional material; Uniform and independent random distribution of the net forces; Every fragment fracture stops with constant probability p. Furthermore, the material has q random point flaws that interact with the maximal net forces to produce the fracture. By large-scale simulations, it was obtained a power law for the fragment size distribution for a wide range of the parameters of the model. Its visualizations simulate fragmentation in brittle materials, like glass.
