Abstract: The brittle failure of certain engineering materials represents but an ultimate phase in a process characterized by an evolving system of microdefects distributed over a large part of the volume. The paper analyzes the applicability of the deterministic models to describe the processes of brittle deformation dominated by the evolution of interacting microcracks (cooperative fracture).
