Note critical volume fraction needed for reinforcement of matrix. When fibers are
discontinuous (i.e., their length is less than that of the component) and/or possess
variable strength, the maximum strength potential of the composite is lower than ...
which describes the strength of a composite containing discontinuous elastic
fibers embedded within a plastically deformed matrix phase. It should be
recognized that the many fibers in a particular composite do not possess the
same strength ...
follows that shear failure parallel to the fiber axis is more likely to occur in off-axis
composites at elevated temperatures since im decreases more rapidly than oc
with increasing temperature. Finally, transverse tensile fracture perpendicular to ...

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.
