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.

I .2.2.2 Plastic Instability and Necking The true and engineering stress-strain plots
from a tensile test reveal basic differences, ... When the stress reaches a critical
level, plastic deformation will occur at the weakest part of the test sample, ...
Curve A: Type IV behavior; Curve B: Type IV material response after reloading;
Curve C: Type III behavior associated with dislocation-solute atom interactions
leading to heterogeneous plastic deformation; Curve D: Type II behavior
Since plastic deformation processes in amorphous glasses are very limited, the
difference in surface energy and fracture energy values is not expected to be
great. This is not true for metals and polymers, where the fracture energy is found

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.
