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.

Furthermore, when \ is small and the temperature relatively low, diffusion is found
to be controlled by a grain-boundary path. On the other hand, when X is large
and the temperature relatively high, volume diffusion controls the grain-boundary
This change in fracture path occurs since grain boundaries become weaker with
respect to the matrix as temperature is increased. The transition temperature for
this crack path change-over is often referred to as the "equicohesive temperature.
(a) Clear evidence of grain boundary sliding in UHP alloy as noted by
displacement of fiduciary line; (b) lack of grain boundary sliding when alloy
contains 300 wt-ppm carbon in solid solution. (Courtesy Jason L. Hertzberg.) is a
strong function ...

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
