This popular text/reference has been updated to reflect recent developments in the understanding of deformation and fracture processes in structural materials. This edition contains 1200+ references, 20 new example problems, approximately 40 additional homework problems and 50 more figures. Features new sections on isostress analysis, the modulus of rupture, plastic anisotropy, creep fracture micromechanisms and procedures for the avoidance of fatigue damage. Includes fresh analytical material on the Weibull analysis of the statistical nature of fracture and the generation of thermal stresses and thermal shock-induced fracture.
