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.

Maximum toughness, therefore, is achieved with an optimum combination of
strength and ductility; neither high strength (e.g., glass) nor exceptional ductility (
e.g., taffy) alone provides for large fracture energy absorption (Fig. 1.13). Material
They are added to a polymer to improve its processa- bility and/or ductility. These
changes arise for a number of reasons. Plasticizers add a low MW fraction to the
melt, which broadens the MWD and shifts M to lower values. This enhances ...
12.34 and show superior fatigue life for alloys with low fatigue ductility exponents
c. Morrow19 also determined that c = -1 \+5ri (12-18) which indicates that plastic
strain fatigue life should be greater in materials with high values of ri.

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
