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.

The material is suitable for advanced undergraduate courses in metallurgy and
materials, mechanical engineering, and civil engineering where a combined
materials-fracture mechanics approach is stressed. The book also will be useful
to working engineers who want to learn more about mechanical metallurgy and,
particularly the fracture- mechanics approach to the fracture of solids. I have
assumed that readers have had previous training in strength of materials and
basic calculus, ...
METALLURGICAL. EMBRITTLEMENT. "The image of stress corrosion I see Is
that of a huge unwanted tree, Against whose trunk we chop and chop, But which
outgrows the chips that drop; And from each gash made in its bark A new branch
grows to make more dark The shade of ignorance around its base, Where
scientists toil with puzzled face" On Stress Corrosion, S. P. Rideout* Much
attention was given in preceding chapters to the importance of the plane strain
fracture toughness ...
METALLURGICAL. ASPECTS. OF. FCP. Many studies conducted in the
intermediate growth rate regime reveal that monotonic yield strength,
thermomechanical treatment, and preferred orientation do not have a
pronounced effect on FCP rates in aluminum and steel alloys; that is, fatique
crack propagation is relatively structure insensitive.* Such a generalization must
be tempered somewhat by the fact that alloy chemistry and microstructure do
influence corrosion fatigue behavior.

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
