as the stress-concentration factor k, and describes the effect of crack geometry on
the local crack-tip stress level. Many textbooks and standard handbooks ...
To develop materials with greater toughness and reliability, researchers have
utilized geometrical and crack-tip shielding extrinsic toughening mechanisms (
see Fig. 10.3). Both are responsible for the phenomenological development of R-

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
