Crack avalanches in the three-dimensional random fuse model

By S. Zapperi, P.K.V.V. Nukala and S. &#352


We analyze the scaling of avalanche precursors in the three-dimensional random fuse model by numerical simulations. We find that both the integrated and non-integrated avalanche size distributions are in good agreement with the results of the global load sharing fiber bundle model, which represents the mean-field limit of the model
