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 distinctly different set of toughening mechanisms, extrinsic in nature, have been
identified, which focus attention on events taking place either in the wake of the
crack or ahead of the advancing crack front (Fig. 10.3). Each mechanism serves ...
10.35. Note that in each case the fracture toughness value can be optimized with
appropriate ceramic chemistry or heat treatment. Likewise, since toughening in
zirconia-based alloys is achieved by the energy-consuming transformation of ...
The most widely studied method involves the addition of rubbery particles to the
epoxy matrix, which facilitates three major toughening mechanisms:104-1"0 "9-

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.
