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.

The answer depends on how well the defined transition temperature agrees with
the service experience of the structural component under study. For example,
Charpy test results for steel plate obtained from failures of Liberty ships revealed
Figure 9.10a shows the change in transition temperature for PVC with different
notch radii. The large reduction in fracture energy at a given temperature with the
presence of a notch is attributed to the high strain rate at the notch root and the ...
Since these structure-property correlations were established with many different
properties (strength, ductility, impact energy, ductile-brittle transition temperature,
and fracture toughness), it is difficult to make immediate data comparisons.

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.
