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.
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 (booknews.com)
