Compare the K,c values obtained with long bend bar, disk compact, and short rod
specimen configurations. 10.9 A rectangularly shaped component is to be
fabricated from the least expensive steel available (presumed to be the alloy with
The task, then, is to predict, based on constant amplitude test data, the life of a
component subjected to a variable load history. A number of cumulative damage
theories, proposed during the past few decades, describe the relative importance
Such computations are used routinely to determine the "safe-life" or durability of
numerous engineering components. By further illustration, let us assume that a
design engineer assigns a "safe-life" of 1000 cycles to a particular component

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
This is a great book, not only work as a text book, but also a sophisticate reference book.
