Failure of Materials in Mechanical Design: Analysis, Prediction, Prevention

by

Failure of Materials in Mechanical Design: Analysis, Prediction, Prevention Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covers the basic principles of failure of metallic and non-metallic materials in mechanical design applications. Updated to include new developments on fracture mechanics, including both linear-elastic and elastic-plastic mechanics. Contains new material on strain and crack development and behavior. Emphasizes the potential for mechanical failure brought about by the stresses, strains and energy transfers in machine parts that result from the forces, deflections and energy inputs applied.

Book News Annotation:

A text-reference that provides a comprehensive examination of every method currently being used to analyze, predict, and prevent mechanical failure brought about by the stresses, strains, and energy transfers in machine parts that result from the forces, deflections, and energy inputs applied. This edition is revised and updated with new developments in fracture mechanics, plus all new material on crack development and behavior. It also features new problems and real-world examples.
