I have read in some articles about unstable crack growth which is sometimes referred to as RCP, however it seems that there is a clear difference between unstable crack growth and RCP. According to a paper from Leevers, P. (2001; ISBN: 0-08-0431526 📷 pp. 3322±3329 ;see attached image), he differentiated between an unstable crack growth which follows a slow crack Growth (SCG) when a critical value K1c is reached and an RCP which also follows SCG, however in a different way. I am grateful for any kind of explanation.
