Abstract (in english)
   The distinction between fringes of en echelon segmentation and hackles on joint surfaces is important because they reflect different fracture conditions. We found that the normalized (real) ratios of hidden area divided by revealed area on the hackle and en echelon fringes of joints A and C are respectively, rH= 0.44 and rE= 0.14, while rH/rE = 3.14. This shows that considerably more new area is formed in hackle zones than in en echelon zones per a given nominal area of the fringe. Possibly, the transformation of some KI to KIII in the transition from hackle to en echelon fringe involves an increase in heat loss, which is the portion of energy not used in the creation of new fracture surfaces
