Arun Shukla, «Practical Fracture Mechanics in Design»
CRC | ISBN 0824758854 | December 14, 2004 | PDF | 522 Pages | 3.0 MB
Completely updated and expanded to reflect developments in the field, the second edition of this valuable reference reviews all of the fracture modes and design methodologies needed for control and prevention of structural failures in mechanical components. It begins with the historical development of the field and then provides the fundamentals, basic formulas, elementary worked examples, and references with an emphasis on linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM) using a hands-on approach. The book includes case studies and design problems along with new chapters on experimental methods in fracture, fracture of composite materials, dynamic fracture, and post mortem analysis of fracture surfaces.
