Fracture Mechanics: Current Status, Future Prospects presents the remarkable increase in the number of tools available for engineers to deal with cracked structures in a quantitative manner. This book discusses the acceptance of the stress intensity factor as a distinguishing similitude parameter that properly accounts for the applied mechanics near crack tips in several cases of practical interest. Dr. Anderson is the author of Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications, which has remained the top selling textbook in its field since the 1st Edition was published in This book has been adopted as a required text by over universities, and is a favorite reference for practicing engineers. With a concise and easily understood mathematical treatment of crack tip fields, this book provides the basis for applying fracture mechanics in solving practical problems. It features a unique coverage of bi-material interfacial cracks, with applications to commercially important areas of composite materials, layered structures, and microelectronic packaging. The increased attention paid to experimental rock fracture mechanics has led to major contributions to the solving of geophysical problems. The text presents a concise treatment of the physics and mathematics of a representative selection of problems from areas such as earthquake mechanics and prediction, hydraulic fracturing, hot dry rock geothermal energy, fault mechanics, and dynamic .

Mar 22,  · 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/5(21). Basic Fracture Mechanics: Including an Introduction to Fatigue Smith introduces fracture and fatigue and provides a series of simple, useful programs which implement those methods. The topic is well suited to a computer based approach since repetitive calculations can be . Introduction to Fracture Mechanics David Roylance Department of Materials Science and Engineering Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, MA Fracture Mechanics covers classical and modern methods and introduce new/unique techniques, making this text an important resource for anyone involved in the study or application of fracture mechanics. Using insights from leading experts in fracture mechanics, it provides new approaches and new applications to advance the understanding of crack initiation and propagation.
