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.

If not, the microstructure becomes unstable and new strain-free equiaxed grains
are formed by combined recovery, recrystallization, and grain growth processes.
These new grains will have a much lower dislocation density (in the range of 104
Athough the properties of these alloys are very good, the allowable solidification
rates for their manufacture are much lower than those permissible in the
manufacture of directionally solidified columnar or single-crystal microstructures.

Fracture toughness can be enhanced through crack deflection and/or
meandering of the crack path within the microstructure. The fracture of natural
wood products is especially noteworthy in this regard. Energy is also absorbed
when hard ...

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
