not exactly. lattice works with compression, but has one limitation
I never came around to fix - it doesn't have collision detection with
itself. Once something breaks into two halves, they can overlap if
they move onto each other. But I didn't need to fix this for my
calculations, because the deformations were so small, that if
something breaks - it doesn't move more than the crack size.

concrete is a fake rock, lattice will work for rock fracturing,
subject to collisions limitation. Adding collisions is possible by
enveloping a lattice mesh into a polyhedron and use collision
detection between polyhedrons. A bit of work, though.

Lattice can not do dynamics, though. No impacts, etc. Only
quasi-static simulations.
