Providing a working knowledge of fatigue and fracture properties in actual engineering practice, this Handbook is especially valuable in evaluating test data and knowing the key variables that affect results. It will also give you a better understanding of fracture mechanics to aid you in life assessment and life extension of components.
Sections include: Fatigue Mechanisms, Crack Growth, Testing, Engineering Aspects of Fatigue Life, Fracture Mechanics of Engineering Materials, Fatigue and Fracture Control, Castings, Weldments, Wrought Steels, Aluminum Alloys, Titanium Alloys and Superalloys. Appendices contain comprehensive coverage of fatigue strength parameters and stress-intensity factors.

Published: 1996About the Author:
The publication of this Volume marks the first time that the ASM Handbook series has dealt with fatigue and fracture as a distinct topic. Society members and engineers involved in the research, development, application, and analysis of engineering materials have had a long-standing interest and involvement with fatigue and fracture problems, and this reference book is intended to provide practical and comprehensive coverage of all aspects of these subjects.
Publication of Fatigue and Fracture also marks over 50 years of continuing progress in the development and application of modern fracture mechanics. Numerous Society members have been actively involved in this progress, which is typified by the seminal work of George Irwin ("Fracture Dynamics," Fracturing of Metals, ASM, 1948). Since that time period, fracture mechanics has become a vital engineering discipline that has been integrally involved in helping to prevent the failure of essentially all types of engineered structures.
Likewise, fatigue and crack growth have also become of primary importance to the development and use of advanced structural materials, and this Volume addresses the wide range of fundamental, as well as practical, issues involved with these disciplines.
We believe that our readers will find this Handbook useful, instructive, and informative at all levels. We also are especially grateful to the authors and reviewers who have made this work possible through their generous commitments of time and technical expertise. To these contributors we offer our special thanks.
