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.

Note that as allc approaches 0.5, Q approaches 2.5, where y/l/Q equals 2/tt,
which is the solution for an embedded circular flaw or a semicircular surface flaw.
An embedded elliptical or semielliptical surface flaw will grow such that allc
certain critical decisions can be made. However, once any combination of two
key variables (fracture toughness, stress, and flaw size) is defined, the third factor
is fixed. A leak-before-break condition16 could develop in a manner shown in Fig
8.5 Calculate the leak-before-break criterion in terms of flaw size and section
thickness. 8.6 Prove to yourself that the ASTM criteria for a valid plane-strain
fracture- toughness test (Eq. 8-49) reflects the condition associated with Eq. 8-50.

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.
