The simulation is aimed to reproduce a quasi-staic fault
growth in cylinder.
The final stage of simulation is shown below.
You may play several movies (animated GIF files) in the bottom frame or download AVI files to your local station.
The simulation starts with homogeneous sample - step1 play download
At the initial stage of damage evolution the damage is still homogeneous - step2 play download
Small heterogenyties could be observed on the suface - step3 play download
Small high damaged zone at the surface reflect the damage localization - step4 play download
Significant localized damaged zones are well observed at the surface - step5 play download
Finally the oblique fault zone cuts the sample - step6 play download
