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.

(a) (6) FIGURE 1.17 (a) Type V stress-strain behavior usually found in crystalline
polymers. Minimum in curve reflects cold drawing and competition between
breakdown of initial structure and its subsequent reorganization into a highly
additional deformation, designers often make use of isochronous stress-strain
curves which are derived from such creep data (e.g., see line xy). Figure 6.196
shows three isochronous stress-strain curves corresponding to loading times of
By initiating the test with the maximum strain amplitude in the block, the
monotonic stress-strain curve is automatically determined for subsequent
comparison with the cyclically stabilized curve. In this manner, both the
monotonic and cyclic ...

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.
