Fatigue and Fracture: Understanding the Basics

Author:
This book emphasizes the physical and practical aspects of fatigue and fracture. It covers mechanical properties of materials, differences between ductile and brittle fractures, fracture mechanics, the basics of fatigue, structural joints, high temperature failures, wear, environmentally-induced failures, and steps in the failure analysis process. Separate chapters are devoted to fatigue and fracture of steels, aluminum alloys, titanium and titanium alloys, ceramics, polymers and continuous fiber polymer matrix composites.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to Fatigue and Fracture
  • Mechanical Behavior
  • Ductile and Brittle Fracture
  • Fracture Mechanics
  • Fatigue of Metals
