Local Minima and Gradients of Stiffness and Conductivity as Indicators of Strength Reduction of Brittle-Elastic Materials

It is often suggested in literature to use change in the effective elastic properties (stiffness loss) as an indicator of reduction of strength due to defects such as cracks and pores. We argue that the key parameter is not the reduction of the average (over the specimen) stiffness but its local min...
