Vital for design, testing, and material selection
Practical information for estimating fatigue life
In-depth coverage of practical fracture mechanics for life assessment, life extension, and fracture control
Thorough coverage of key structural materials, weldments and components

"You've done a tremendous job. The Handbook is clear, comprehensive treatment of fracture and fatigue giving a solid coverage of the materials, design, and analysis perspectives (something I thought nearly impossible to do in a single book)."

This latest addition to the ASM Handbook series is the first reference book of its kind to put critical information on both fatigue and fracture mechanics in one convenient volume. It provides comprehensive data on a broad spectrum of engineering structural materials and alloys. You get coverage on mechanisms, testing, analysis, and characterization.

You'll learn about fatigue and fracture from both the fundamental and practical standpoint. It's the essential data necessary for you to make informed decisions on alloy design and material selection. You'll also gain valuable insight into fracture control, life assessment, and failure analysis.

Providing a working knowledge of fatigue and fracture properties in actual engineering practice, this Handbook is especially useful in evaluating test data and helping you understand the key variables that affect results. It will also give you a better grasp of fracture mechanics to aid you in life assessment and life extension of components.

Two and a half years in development, this book is a wide collection of articles contributed by almost 100 leading international authorities, then refined by exhaustive peer review. It's an absolute must for component designers, mechanical engineers, metallurgists, materials scientists, and engineering students who are involved in the testing, analysis, or use of fatigue and fracture properties.

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, Other Structural Alloys, Solders, Advanced Materials. Appendices contain comprehensive coverage of fatigue strength parameters and stress-intensity factors.
