Description

Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications, Fourth Edition is the most useful and comprehensive guide to fracture mechanics available. It has been adopted by more than 150 universities worldwide and used by thousands of engineers and researchers. This new edition reflects the latest research, industry practices, applications, and computational analysis and modeling. It encompasses theory and applications, linear and nonlinear fracture mechanics, solid mechanics, and materials science with a unified, balanced, and in-depth approach. Numerous chapter problems have been added or revised, and additional resources are available for those teaching college courses or training sessions. Dr. Anderson’s own website can be accessed at www.FractureMechanics.com.

 

Reviews

"This book presents a good cross section of theoretical and practical material, providing the student with a good grounding in the fundamentals as well as examples and opportunities to practice solving engineering problems related to fracture. I especially like the historical approach taken in this book, which shows how the field has developed rapidly over the past 75 years. This gives the student an appreciation of how recently the field has emerged and how it is still evolving."
