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.

Having characterized the varied tensile behavior of engineering solids, it is
appropriate to comment briefly on how a material's tensile response may be used
to predict failure in a component that experiences multiaxial loading. Several "
For brittle ceramics, au = 0 since any tensile stress might cause failure. Failure
would not be expected when o<0 since compressive stresses would act to close
the crack.] ct0 = a characteristic strength that is analogous to the mean strength of
This simple example describes a most insidious fracture mechanism — failure
does not occur when the component is loaded initially; instead, failure occurs
after a certain number of similar load fluctuations have been experienced. The

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.
