The final (?) paper “Fracture diodes: Directional asymmetry of fracture toughness”, stemming from the collaborative project “Designing Microstructures for Engineering Toughness”, DMS-1535076 has been accepted in Physical Review Letters.
In this article, we used numerical simulation and experiments to study meta-materials with directionally asymmetric fracture properties initially devised in (Hossain, Hsueh, Bourdin, & Bhattacharya, 2014).
