AbstractThe gradual breakdown of a material during creep due to the formation of cracks is a subject receiving widespread attention. Although considerable information has been obtained on how individual cracks are nucleated, grow, and ultimately join together to cause failure, not much attention has been given to the possible interrelation between crack formation and the stress and time dependence of the deformation. Information has recently been presented on crack density and creep behaviour for an aluminium-zinc alloy. The author has obtained similar information for ice. In addition to demonstrating a correlation between cracking activity and deformation, these observations show an interesting similarity in behaviour, even though the mode of crack formation is different for the two materials.
