Computational models based on the phase-field method operate on a mesoscopic length scale providing microstructure and mechanical property relations. We derive a quantitative phase-field model capable of describing the coupled diffusion of the surrounding water and the stress evolution during dynamic fracture formation under applied load in glass materials.
