Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


Based on a two-dimensional atomistic model, we study the bifurcation associated with crack propagation and kinking. In the study, the varying parameter is the tensile and shear strain applied at the boundary. Both mode-I and mixed mode-I/II loading are considered.
