Abstract

A macroscale fracturing process which results from microscale damaging is discussed on a basis of a homogenization theory under the microscale strong discontinuity kinematics. It is also pointed out that the development of microcracks is a mechanochemical coupling process of the siloxane materials under water existence, that is, a hydrolysis process of silicate minerals.
