Booknews
Outlines the use of linear elastic fracture mechanics and other approaches to describe fatigue crack propagation in the high-cycle regime in metals. Reviews current theories on near-threshold behavior and known mechanisms of slow crack advance. Discusses methods of measurement and appropriate standards, the effect of individual parameters (mechanical properties, microstructures, environment, and load type), defect type, notches, and short cracks. The applicability of the threshold stress intensity range as a threshold parameter is explored, and case studies presented to illustrate its use. Intended for practicing engineers, but also suitable for advanced courses in materials science and failure analysis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
