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.

To illustrate, glass fibers, which possess strengths in excess of 700 MPa but
provide limited ductility, will exhibit a Type I stress-strain response. In sharp
contrast, nylon 66 (a typical engineering thermoplastic) would reveal a modified
Type V ...
The many discrete fibers, filaments, or platelets are supposed to carry much of
the load applied to the composite. The fact that there are many discrete fibers in a
given composite provides redundancy to the structure and precludes catastrophic
which describes the strength of a composite containing discontinuous elastic
fibers embedded within a plastically deformed matrix phase. It should be
recognized that the many fibers in a particular composite do not possess the
same strength ...

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
