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.

It is known that the general flow curve for a given material will decrease with
increasing temperature T and decreasing strain rate e (Fig. 1.27). The magnitude
of these changes varies with the material; body-centered-cubic metals (e.g., iron,
7.6 EXTERNAL VARIABLES AFFECTING FRACTURE As mentioned in Section
7.4, the damaging effect of an existing stress concentration depends strongly on
the material's ability to yield locally and thereby blunt the crack tip. Consequently
appears to be related to the nature and stability of the dislocation substructure of
the material. For an initially soft material, the dislocation density is low. As a result
of plastic strain cycling, the dislocation density increases rapidly, contributing 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.
