Modeling a crack in a material.

  1. Jul 7, 2013 #1
    I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to model/fit a crack on a material surface with a Weierstrass function.

    I'm also wondering whether a crack exposed to damage becomes more jagged over time or more smooth? Is there a process that reverses the other one, i.e. from being more jagged to smooth, vice/versa?
