Description: The Griffith crack theory is reviewed and certain shortcomings of this theory are discussed. A new description for the shape of a crack is given which takes into account the atomic structure of material. Through consideration of the total energy of the system and the shape of the crack, expressions for crack behavior are derived which are considered to remedy the defects of the Griffith theory.
