Fail-safe materials are those materials that will not fail in an unexpected way.  One of the most frustrating problems is when plastics fail under conditions where they should not fail.  Unfurtunately plastics like most materials are complicated systems behaving in many ways not clearly understood or appreciated.  The goal of the materials engineering is to develop fail-safe materials.  The single most important way to do this is to build in multiple ways a material can respond to stress and especially cracking.  Below are articles which seem to support this concept.  (RDC 5/5/2012)
