  • Offers broad coverage of linear and nonlinear fracture mechanics, their fundamental concepts, and practical applications
  • Integrates solid mechanics with materials science, examining the micromechanisms of fracture
  • Places detailed mathematical derivations in appendices at the end of relevant chapters to enhance readability without sacrificing rigor
  • Covers recent developments in laboratory testing, application to structures, and computational methods
  • Includes a new chapter on environmental cracking and more than 400 graphs, schematics, drawings, and photographs

    With its combination of practicality, readability, and rigor that is characteristic of any truly authoritative reference and text, Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications quickly established itself as the most comprehensive guide to fracture mechanics available. It has been adopted by more than 100 universities and embraced by thousands of professional engineers worldwide. Now in its third edition, the book continues to raise the bar in both scope and coverage. It encompasses theory and applications, linear and nonlinear fracture mechanics, solid mechanics, and materials science with a unified, balanced, and in-depth approach.

    Reflecting the many advances made in the decade since the previous edition came about, this indispensable Third Edition now includes:

    ?A new chapter on environmental cracking
    ?Expanded coverage of weight functions
    ?New material on toughness test methods
    ?New problems at the end of the book
    ?New material on the failure assessment diagram (FAD) method
    ?Expanded and updated coverage of crack closure and variable-amplitude fatigue
    ?Updated solutions manual

    In addition to these enhancements, Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications, Third Edition also includes detailed mathematical derivations in appendices at the end of applicable chapters; recent developments in laboratory testing, application to structures, and computational methods; coverage of micromechanisms of fracture; and more than 400 illustrations. This reference continues to be a necessity on the desk of anyone involved with fracture mechanics.
