7.15 where l> lm represent values of ATc associated with conditions for quasi-
stable crack growth in brittle bodies ... material strength with increasing
temperature difference for stable and unstable crack extension is summarized in
Richard W. Hertzberg. 1. Load several three-point bend bars or compact
specimens to various displacements and then unload. These samples should
reveal various amounts of crack extension from the fatigue-precracked starter
The blunting line is conceived from the following considerations: Consider that a
sharp crack begins to blunt as the load on the component is increased. Blunting (
i.e., effective crack extension) then increases until actual crack extension occurs.

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.
