Almost all books available on fracture mechanics cover the majority of topics presented in this book, and often much, much more. While great as references, this makes teaching from them more difficult because the materials are not typically presented in the order that most professors cover them in their lectures and more than half the information presented is not covered in an introductory course at all. Focusing on the needs of students and professors, Fundamentals of Fracture Mechanics offers an introduction to the discipline through careful editing and mindfulness toward the audience. The book begins with a review of the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and the theory of elasticity relevant to fracture mechanics. The following material has been carefully selected, only including topics important enough to be covered in a first course on fracture mechanics. Except for the last chapter, no advanced topics are covered. Therefore, instructors of elementary fracture mechanics courses can easily cover the entire book in a three-unit graduate-level course without having to spend too much time picking and choosing appropriate topics for the course from the vast knowledge presented in most fracture mechanic books available today. Drawing on over 20 years of teaching, the author supplies practical and useful resources, including practice exercises designed to facilitate enjoyable learning and reference for further study. His clear, concise coverage of essential information makes the book ideal not only for an introductory course but also for self-study.

Fundamentals of Fracture Mechanics is an advanced undergraduate and graduate level textbook that aims to explore the methods used to diagnosis cracking defects within materials or structures and determine if the defects have potential to grow or damage the mechanics of the structure. It will provide a solid mathematical/numerical foundation under the assumption that the reader has a working knowledge of calculus, as well as in-depth coverage of microstructural origins of fracture toughness in polymers, metals, composites and microelectronic devices. The major emphasis of the book will be on Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM), since most real-world fracture problems fall within this regime. In addition to the LEFM analytical model, the book will cover material on elastic/plastic fracture, which has particular importance in applications where structural materials are under great stress, such as with pressure vessels and piping system. This new text is designed to provide engineering students with a maximum of useful knowledge that they can apply to real design problems. The student will gain insight into the applications of fracture mechanics in problem solving across a broad range of disciplines, from microelectronic devices to biomedical applications to large-scale structural applications such as pressure vessels and aircraft. Includes critique of the classical approaches to fracture and the need for a more global approach Discusses computations of stress intensity parameters for various crack/load geometries, including the Westergaard technique Numerical techniques using finite element analysis (FEA)are developed for specific and complex load/crack geometries

This textbook consists primarily of notes by Iain Finnie who taught a popular course on fracture mechanics at the University of California at Berkeley. It presents a comprehensive and detailed exposition of fracture, the fundamentals of fracture mechanics and procedures for the safe design of engineering components made from metal alloys, brittle materials like glasses and ceramics, and composites. Interesting and practical problems are listed at the end of most chapters to give the student practice in applying the theory. A solutions manual is provided to the instructor. The text presents a unified perspective of fracture with a strong fundamental foundation and practical applications. In addition to its role as a text, this reference would be invaluable for the practicing engineer who is involved in the design and evaluation of components that are fracture critical. This book also: Presents details of derivations of the basic equations of fracture mechanics and the historical context of the development of fracture theory and methodology Treats linear and nonlinear fracture mechanics methodologies beginning with a review of the basic equations of solid mechanics followed by solutions useful in fracture prediction Illustrates the basis of linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM), practical applications of LEFM in the design of fracture-tolerant structural components Offers interesting, practical, classroom proven problems at the end of most chapters Includes instructor's solutions manual

The 8th International Symposium on fracture mechanics of ceramics was held in on the campus of the University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA, on February 25-28, 2003. With the natural maturing of the fields of structural ceramics, this symposium focused on nano-scale materials, composites, thin films and coatings as well as glass. The symposium also addressed new issues on fundamentals of fracture mechanics and contact mechanics, and a session on reliability and standardization.
