Deformation and Fracture Mechanics of Engineering Materialsprovides a combined fracture mechanics-materials approach to thefracture of engineering solids with comprehensive treatment anddetailed explanations and references, making it the perfectresource for senior and graduate engineering students, andpracticing engineers alike.

 The 5th edition includes new end-of-chapter homeworkproblems, examples, illustrations, and a new chapter on productsliability and recall addressing the associated social consequencesof product failure. The new edition continues to discuss actualfailure case histories, and includes new discussion of the fracturebehavior and fractography of ceramics, glasses, and compositematerials, and a section on natural materials including bone andsea shells.

New co-authors Richard P. Vinci and Jason L. Hertzberg add theirtalent and expertise to broaden the book's perspective, whilemaintaining a balance between the continuum mechanics understandingof the failure of solids and the roles of the material's nano- andmicrostructure as they influence the mechanical properties ofmaterials.

Editorial Reviews

A textbook for advanced undergraduate courses in metallurgy and materials, mechanical engineering, and civil engineering, and reference for working engineers. It discusses macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the mechanical behavior of metals, ceramics, and polymers, emphasizing recent developments in materials science and fracture mechanics. This revised edition adds several new topics and updates numerous sections to reflect recent developments in the understanding of deformation and fracture processes in structural materials. Some 130 new references have been added, as have 20 new example problems and 40 new homework problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
