work satisfactorily only for certain materials such ... If a crack is embedded within
a localized stress concentration region, the application of a moderate load could

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
