The dislocation is the basic building block of the crack in an elastic-plastic solid. Fracture mechanics is developed in this text from its dislocation foundation. It is the only text to do so. It is written for the graduate student and the new investigator entering the fracture field as well as the experienced scientist who has not used the dislocation approach. The dislocation mechanics needed to find the dislocation density fields of crack tip plastic zones is developed in detail. All known dislocation based solutions are given for the three types of cracks in elastic-plastic solids.

Johannes (Hans) Weertman is Walter P Murphy Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. He is also a professor in geophysics in the Geological Sciences Department at that school. He received his B.S. (1948) and D.Sc (1951) at Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University). He has been at Northwestern University since 1959. He is author of 300 research papers. His research primarily has been on the mechanical properties of metals, particularly on high temperature creep and fatigue and fracture of metals and on dislocation theory applied to these phenomena. In the field of geophysics his primary work has been on the theory of the flow of glaciers.
Dr Weertman was a Fulbright fellow at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris and a Guggenheim fellow at the Scott Polar Research Institute of the University of Cambridge. He has received a number of awards including the Mathewson Gold Medal from the TMS-AIME (1977), the Acta Metallurgica Gold Medal (1980), the Seligman Crystal of the International Glaciological Society (1983) and the Horton Award of the American Geophysical Union (1962). His name has been given to an island in Antarctica. He was elected in 1976 to the National Academy of Engineering.
