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.

(f energy /volume = ade (1-25) Jo Maximum toughness, therefore, is achieved
with an optimum combination of strength and ductility; neither high strength (e.g.,
glass) nor exceptional ductility (e.g., taffy) alone provides for large fracture energy
1.13, we see that strong but brittle materials (A) can withstand large stresses prior
to failure but possess limited ductility; soft, ductile materials (C) exhibit
considerable plastic flow but little load-bearing capacity. Though only a relatively
Representative fatigue property data for selected metal alloys are given in Table

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.
