Hardbound. An important element of work in fracture mechanics is the stress intensity factor - the characterizing parameter for the crack tip field in a linear elastic material; something reflected in its intense research over the last 30 years. The weight function method is one of the most reliable, versatile, and cost-effective methods of evaluating the stress intensity factors and crack opening displacements. This book provides a valuable account of the author's research in these fields. It has two aims: firstly to provide a theoretical background to the weight function method in fracture mechanics for accurate analysis of two-dimensional crack problems; and secondly, to provide a significant number of stress intensity factor solutions for practical cases. The result is an easy-to-use, accurate analytical method for analysing crack problems, an ideal reference source for graduate students, researchers, and engineers involved with the fracture and fatig
