Re: [Question #676014]: Determining breaked interactions in JCFpm
Question #676014 on Yade changed:
Status: Open => Answered
Jérôme Duriez proposed the following answer:
Looking at interactions "i", you may (equivalently) look at
i.phys.breakOccurred, or i.phys.isBroken, see JCFpmPhys doc 
However, as you understood, interactions broken in tension will most probably disappear right after breakage (though one way to avoid this behavior is to define neverErase=True in Law2_ScGeom_JCFpmPhys_JointedCohesiveFrictionalPM), and it will be impossible to access them (they're gone..)
Depending what you want determine about broken interactions (their locations ? their number ? ..), you may also look at the bodies-related variables JCFpmState.damageIndex, nbBrokenBonds...: b.state.damageIndex where b is a body.
As for the Law2 variable nbShearCracks, nbTensCracks, you classically just have to access the Law2 Python object (let say it's named "object"), and ask for "object.nbTensCracks".
A convenient way of accessing this Law2 Python object is to use labels:
E.g. having in your InteractionLoop definition (in O.engines) :
