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.
A textbook for advanced undergraduate courses in metallurgy and materials, mechanical engineering, and civil engineering, and reference for working engineers. It discusses macroscopic and microscopic aspects of the mechanical behavior of metals, ceramics, and polymers, emphasizing recent developments in materials science and fracture mechanics. This revised edition adds several new topics and updates numerous sections to reflect recent developments in the understanding of deformation and fracture processes in structural materials. Some 130 new references have been added, as have 20 new example problems and 40 new homework problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
