Deformation and fracture mechanics of engineering materials

Front Cover
Wiley, Jan 17, 1989 - Technology & Engineering - 680 pages
This Third Edition of the well-received engineering materials book has been completely updated, and now contains over 1,100 citations. Thorough enough to serve as a text, and up-to-date enough to serve as a reference. There is a new chapter on strengthening mechanisms in metals, new sections on composites and on superlattice dislocations, expanded treatment of cast and powder-produced conventional alloys, plastics, quantitative fractography, JIC and KIEAC test procedures, fatigue, and failure analysis. Includes examples and case histories.

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
