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.

(1-58) The maximum stress at fracture is referred to as the bend strength or the "
modulus of rupture." The reader should recognize that the maximum flexural
stresses (both tensile or compressive) given by Eq. 1-58 are experienced only at
The maximum normal stress theory is perhaps the simplest failure theory; it
describes failure as occurring when the maximum tensile or compressive stress
exceeds the uniaxial tensile or compressive strength, respectively, of the material
This may be rationalized in terms of failure occurring on those planes containing
the maximum resolved shear stress. (Since az = 0 in plane stress, a Mohr circle
construction will show that the planes of maximum shear will lie along ± 45° lines

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
