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.

When the applied stress level is replaced by the effective stress value in Eq. 5-20,
the stress dependency of es and the apparent activation energy for creep are
found to be similar to those values corresponding to pure metals (i.e., n ~ 4-5 and
EXAMPLE 8.3 A plate of steel with a central through-thickness flaw of length 16
mm is subjected to a stress of 350 MPa normal ... This occurs often under fatigue
crack propagation conditions, where the applied stresses are well below the yield
12.5, the fracture surface may exhibit any one of several patterns, depending on
such factors as the applied stress and the number of potential crack nucleation
sites. For example, we see that as the severity of a design-imposed stress ...

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
