Characteristic fragment size distributions in dynamic fragmentation
The one-dimensional fragmentation of a dynamically expanding ring (Mott's problem) is studied numerically to obtain the fragment signatures under different strain rates. An empirical formula is proposed to calculate an average fragment size. Rayleigh distribution is found to describe the statistical properties of the fragment populations.
