Three simulations: Sticks, Amaral-Meyer, and Random Catastrophes. Sticks illustrates how systems fail due to outside incidents. Amaral-Meyer illustrates intrinsic failure (internal faults), and Random Catastrophes illustrates how any layered system fails due to random or normal accidents. Concepts: self-organized criticality, power laws, and exceedence probability.

Naval Postgraduate School, 1992-09);Mechanical properties of two phase materials, such as strength, ductility and toughness, depend on the size and distribution of the second phase. However, no methods are presently available to accurately quantify the ...
