… As a result, the distribution of the matrix crack positions was experimentally proven to be a fractal distribution of D = 0.45 and was constant at any loading levels. … Using this fractal distribution, the stiffness degradation was evaluated based on an imaginary crack density. … The model was applied successfully to predict variations of crack density with increasing applied load using damage mechanics. …
