    Hello There, I'm Nelson from Malaysia and current I study in Degree of 3D animation.
    I been requested by lecture to research the science and theory behind "object shatter".

    I would like to ask is there anyone know the theory behind it ?? or any recommended website, forum or book that explaining detail and experiment the science behind it ?? to allow have a starting for the research.

    I been searching in google with keyword "Shattering, Science of breaking, Science of shatter, why object break or shatter and etc". All the web listed is not related to any theory as science behind it but most of it is experiment of breaking glass with sound.
