At this maximum load, further plastic deformation is localized in the necked
region, since the stress increases continually with areal contraction even though
the applied load is decreasing as a result of elastic unloading in the test bar
Whether the body was rigidly gripped such that incremental crack growth would
result in a load drop from P\ to P2 or whether the load was fixed such that crack
extension would result in an increase in 8 by an amount ^8, the stiffness of the ...
1 TYPICAL DEFECTS A wide variety of defects can be found in a given
engineering component.4 These flaws may result from such sources as material
imperfections, defects generated during service, and defects introduced as a
result of ...

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
