Fatigue and Fracture Understanding the Basics

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.
