From the reasoning of the essential varieties of fracture types, it is reasonable to assume an inevitable variety of fracture criteria. Also, the model for the mechanism of crack growth will be different according to different inputs, such as stress or strain level, temperature range, loading velocity, etc. The paper presents a combined micro- and macro fracture mechanics approach to the criterion for brittle fracture and for fatigue crack growth as typical examples of so-called time independent and time dependent fracture respectively.
