9780199662111: The Theory of Materials Failure

A complete and comprehensive theory of failure is developed for homogeneous and isotropic materials. The full range of materials types are covered from very ductile metals to extremely brittle glasses and minerals. Two failure properties suffice to predict the general failure conditions under all states of stress. With this foundation to build upon, many other aspects of failure are also treated, such as extensions to anisotropic fiber composites, cumulative damage, creep and fatigue, and microscale and nanoscale approaches to failure.

About the Author:


Richard M. Christensen, Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Stanford University

Richard M. Christensen has over many years held positions of responsibility in industry, national laboratories, and academia. He has always been active in professional affairs and has held several leadership positions in professional societies. His technical responsibilities and research interests have been in the mechanics of materials for solids, structures, and non-Newtonian fluids. He holds five patents, has written two books and 100 archive journal papers. These are on the following and related topics: properties of polymers (viscoelasticity), composite materials, wave effects in heterogeneous materials, low density materials (extreme porosity), kinetic crack growth, life prediction and durability, failure criteria for isotropic and anisotropic solids.

Review:

This book, which is destined to become a classic in the discipline of the mechanics of solids, gives detailed derivations and solid scientific evaluations of failure criteria of various classes of materials. [] Professor Christensen joins the ranks of luminaries such as Professors Rodney Hill and Daniel Drucker as a legend in solid mechanics, through this excellent book. * Computers, Materials, and Continua, * This stimulating book was a pleasure to read. It will be of great interest to mature graduate students and researchers in solid mechanics. * Journal of Applied Mathematics, * Overall, this is an excellent book, extremely well written. It is resourceful, and the style of presentation is inspiring. I highly recommend it to readers. * George Weng, Rutgers University * A classical subject, accessible to students and researchers at all levels [...] Once you open this concise and easy-to-read book, you may find it difficult to put the book down until you have finished very chapter. * Materials Today *
