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.

Note that a material's resistance to thermal stress- induced failure is enhanced by
a high fracture strength and coefficient of thermal conductivity, and low values of
the modulus of elasticity, coefficient of thermal expansion, and heat transfer rate ...
which correspond to values of y/Ty^EPn (Eq. 8-6). From experimentally
determined surface tension values ys for glass fibers between 745 and 1 1 10°C,
a room temperature value was obtained by extrapolation (risky business, but
toughness values plotted as a function of test temperature. One additional point
should be made with regard to these data. Although K,c increased gradually with
temperatures for the high-strength steels, a dramatic transition to higher values ...

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
