The Griffith relation - a historical review

Munz, Dietrich; Fett, Theo

The equation between the fracture strength and the crack size published by Griffith in his famous paper in 1921 is not correct. Griffith corrected the equation in a conference volume in 1924 without a sufficient explanation. Afterwards several authors published papers with correct and not correct derivation of the Griffith relation. These papers are critically reviewed and the flaw in the first paper of Griffith is analysed.
