The book provides a clear and concise account of the recent developments in research into ductile fracture in metals and alloys. Aspects covered include localized fracture at the root of notches and sharp cracks, and fracture in bulk plastic-deformation processes of the metal and metal forming type. It also discusses various theoretical models in depth, detailing conceptual errors and weaknesses. Overall the book provides a complete presentation of the current understanding of the mechanics and physics of ductile fracture processes. It serves as a valuable text for final year undergraduates, post-graduates, academics, research scientists and engineers who have a working knowledge of basic plasticity theory and of the metallurgy of engineering alloys.
