This volume comprises selected papers from the Asian Pacific Conference for Fracture and Strength (APCFS'04), held on Jeju Island, Korea during the 6th to 8th October, 2004. During this conference, participants from the Asian-Pacific region gathered in order to exchange the latest experimental, theoretical and computational research on the fracture, strength, integrity and reliability of materials and structures. The proceedings therefore cover all of the fundamental aspects of deformation, fatigue and fracture of materials and structures: ranging from large structural components to micro- and nano-scale devices. Twenty technical sessions were organized: welding and joining; fatigue control; environmental effects upon fracture and strength; creep/fatigue interaction; innovative testing and evaluation; fracture mechanics; micro- and nano-mechanics; mems/nems; electronic packaging; bio-technology application; nuclear component integrity assessment; aging/degradation effect upon structural integrity; high-temperature component life assessment; non-destructive evaluation; risk-based maintenance; impact/dynamic effects; smart/composite materials; reliability and application; tribology and surface engineering. Overall, these four volumes constitute an incomparable overview of the latest developments in the fields of fracture and strength.
