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.

1 Strength Levels in Materials It has become common practice to define several
strength levels that characterize the material's ... A much more important material
property is the yield strength — a stress level related to the onset of irreversible ...
Gb (4-10) After rearranging, t = t, + kyd — 1/2 (4-11) which is the shear stress
form of Eq. 4-7. The Petch-Hall relation also characterizes alloy yield strength in
terms of other microstructural parameters such as the pearlite lamellae spacing
Consequently, anything that affects the deformation capacity of the material will
affect its fracture characteristics as well. Obviously, any metallurgical
strengthening mechanism designed to increase yield strength will simultaneously

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.
