This volume not only covers the fundamental concepts of fracture mechanics, but also the computational methodologies necessary for practical engineering designs aimed at fracture control. It gives a concise summary of various fracture theories: linear elastic, elastic-plastic, and dynamic fracture mechanics of metals and composites. Novel numerical methods (finite element and boundary element) that enable the treatment of complicated engineering problems are emphasized. Examined are problems of linear elastic fracture of metallic and non-metallic composite materials, three-dimensional problems of surface flaws, elastic-plastic fracture, stable crack growth, and dynamic crack propagation. A comprehensive outline of the energetic approach and energy integrals on fracture mechanics is also given. Contents: Preface. Parts: I. Chapters: 1. Fracture: Mechanics or Art? (F. Erdogan). II. 2. Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (A.S. Kobayashi). 3. Elastic-Plastic Fracture (Quasi-Static) (S.N. Atluri and A.S. Kobayashi). 4. Dynamic Crack Propagation in Solids (L.B. Freund). 5. Energetic Approaches and Path-Independent Integrals in Fracture Mechanics (S.N. Atluri). III. 6.
