Reference Entry
A definition of the term "Barba's law" is presented. It refers a law in physics, which was named after its discoverer. The law states that in a tensile test in which samples are tested to fracture, geometrically similar test pieces of a given material deform in a similar manner. If the test pieces are right circular cylinders, the same value for the elongation at fracture is obtained for samples of a given material provided that the ratio of the length to the diameter has the same value.

We consider non smooth cracks K that are merely closed and connected. At any point...
