Deformation and fracture mechanics of engineering materials
Updated to reflect recent developments in our understanding of deformation and fracture processes in structural materials. This completely revised reference includes new sections on isostress analysis, modulus of rupture, creep fracture micromechanicsms, and many more.

At this maximum load, further plastic deformation is localized in the necked
region, since the stress increases continually with areal contraction even though
the applied load is decreasing as a result of elastic unloading in the test bar
In crystals that have wide dislocations, however, the increase in Peierls stress
with decreasing temperature is insignificant, since the Peierls stress is negligible
to begin with. Accordingly, there is limited yield strength-temperature
Cahn39 postulated that the lens angle p should increase with decreasing shear
strain. Since the magnitude of B controls the permissible thickness of the lens,
Cahn's postulate correctly predicts the empirical fact that twin thickness increases

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.
