  • The paper reports on the discussions at the ONR Workshop on Fracture Scaling, held at University of Maryland in June 1999, under the chairmanship of Z.P. Baant and Y.D.S. Rajapakse. The workshop dealt with size effects in structural failure and scale bridging in mechanics of materials. The lectures at the Workshop were published in Volume 95 of this Journal. The objective of this paper is to present records and interpretations of the extensive discussions prepared by invited specialists. The records show which are the areas of disagreement among leading researchers and which are those where consensus has been reached.
