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.

Gardze et al4 speculated that the Titanic's sinking was caused by a brittle fracture
of the steel superstructure as a result of the ship having struck an iceberg in the
North Atlantic Ocean. Indeed, Gannon5 reported that a Charpy fracture test (see ...
(b) For material with little intrinsic plastic flow capacity, introduction of sharp crack
induces premature brittle failure. rates because the material must absorb the
impact of a falling pendulum and is tested over a range of temperatures.
The solid line represents the material toughness Kc, assuming ideally elastic
conditions, and the dashed portion of the curve reflects the reality of crack-tip
plasticity. On the basis of the energy necessary to break a component, brittle

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
