Linearly elastic fibers undergo a series of partial failure events which give rise to a gradual degradation of their stiffness. We show that the model reproduces a wide range of mechanical behaviors. We find that macroscopic hardening and plastic responses are characterized by avalanche distributions, which exhibit an algebraic decay with exponents between 5/2 and 2 different from those observed in mean-field fiber bundle models. We also derive analytically the phase diagram of a family of CDFBM which covers a large variety of potential avalanche size distributions. Our results provide a unified view of the statistics of breaking avalanches in fiber bundle models" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "American Physical Society" , "dc.relation.isformatof": "Reproducció digital del document publicat a: http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevE.80.051108" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Physical Review E, 2009, vol. 80, núm. 5, p. 051108" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-F)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Mecànica de fractura" , "dc.subject": "Fracture mechanics" , "dc.subject": "Materials -- Fatiga" , "dc.subject": "Materials -- Fatigue" , "dc.title": "Avalanche dynamics of fiber bundle models" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.embargo.terms": "Cap" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion" , "dc.identifier.doi": "http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevE.80.051108" , "dc.identifier.idgrec": "011382" , "dc.identifier.eissn": "1550-2376" }
