rising load conditions, it is possible for the material to experience slow stable
crack extension prior to failure, which makes it difficult to determine the maximum
stress- intensity level at failure because the final crack length is uncertain. During

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
