This important 2 volume set highlights the state-of-the-art on fracture research and the application of fracture mechanics to brittle disordered materials such as concrete, rock and ceramics. It forms the invited and submitted contributions to the international RILEM/ESIS sysmposium held in Noordwijk, The Netherlands in June 1991.
