The applications portion of this book begins with Chapter 7, which gives practical advice on fracture toughness testing in metals.

Boca Raton London New York. CRC Press is an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, an informa business. As an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University, I was not satisfied with the existing books on fracture mechanics, so I embarked on a 14-month effort to create a work that I would be happy to use in graduate and undergraduate courses. The applications portion of this book begins with Chapter 7, which gives practical advice on fracture toughness testing in metals. Chapter 8 describes fracture testing of nonmetallic materials.

Applications of fracture mechanics in industry are relatively common, as. .Ted L. Anderson 1656 FM.

Applications of fracture mechanics in industry are relatively common, as knowledge that was once confined to a few specialists is becoming more widespread. While there are a number of books on fracture mechanics, most are geared to a specific audience. This book provides a comprehensive treatment of fracture mechanics that should appeal to a relatively wide audience. Theoretical background and practical applications are both covered in detail.

I think that this book is a must have for anyone in the field of fracture and fatigue.

For instance, the polynomial equations for the stress concentration factors (K I) in chapter 2 are labeled incorrectly. I think that this book is a must have for anyone in the field of fracture and fatigue. That being said there are some major drawbacks that should be recognized. As others have pointed out there are many typos in the equations. I learned of some of these typos the hard way.

This bestselling text/reference provides a comprehensive treatment of the fundamentals of fracture mechanics. It presents theoretical background as well as practical applications, and it integrates materials science with solid mechanics.In the Second Edition, about 30% of the material has been updated and expanded; new technology is discussed, and feedback from users of the first edition has been incorporated.

Two specific things about this book keep me from rating it higher:

1- The book has a lot of errors. For instance, the polynomial equations for the stress concentration factors (K_I) in chapter 2 are labeled incorrectly. The diagrams for Center Cracked Tension and Double Edge Notched Tension are reversed. There are also other errors, but to list them all here would be pointless.

2- The problem set is close to worthless. Of the 600 page book, there are 18 pages of problems, or less than 100 total problems. The problems are not even that difficult. The "derivations" in the problem sets hardly require more than 2-3 lines of work, and very little deep thought. In other words, the problems are superficial.

Because of the lack of good problems and the errors (in fact, one of the problems seems to have an error in the difference between compliance and stiffness), I wouldn't feel comfortable using this book as a reference. No doubt, it does provide an excellent introduction or overview of fracture mechanics in general, but I would not feel comfortable with this book as my main source of information. There are also few examples with solutions to motivate learning. A good teacher is necessary to go beyond the basics of this text.

I think that this book is a must have for anyone in the field of fracture and fatigue. I own all three editions and I am mostly happy with all of them. That being said there are some major drawbacks that should be recognized.

1. As others have pointed out there are many typos in the equations. I learned of some of these typos the hard way. I had to go back to the original journal papers in some cases to find the correct form of the equations...after much wasted time and confusion.
2. Each edition seems to drop information on certain topics.
3. This book is not a stand alone book, which is ok, but the author should do a better job of pointing the reader to the most useful references and noting where he is skipping steps. This point is especially important to recognize when working through the derivations of K, J and CTOD.

The book is wonderful introduction to Fracture Mechanics. There are couple of glaring errors in the book, which hopefully will be corrected in the next editions. Apart from that I would recommend it to all those who are trying to get their basics right in fracture mechanics.

If I recall correctly, there are a few mistakes in the derivations of some equations. That said, it's a great reference book for those already familiar with the subject.

Too much dispersive. Not consequential. the arguments seem to fall one after the other without following a logical path.

I'm really enjoying this interesting book that presents the subject in a very didactic form and has an excellent luxury finish.
As a structural engineering graduate student I have found this book to be excellent. It provides a good balance of derivation and practical application. This is one of several books our professor used as references for a class in nonlinear fracture mechanics and I have found this one to be among the best to reference. It adds much of the background that can not be covered in each lecture and provides a reasonable number of examples. The book is well organized and clearly presented making it easy to learn from.

My only complaint is that because of the limited amount of derivations included it is sometimes difficult to understand how certain equations came to be. This has been particularly challenging when trying to take what I've learned and apply it to a different situation - those intermediate steps and the accompanying assumptions are vital.

I obviously can't review this book from a fracture mechanics material scientist point of view but for a structural engineer this book has been very helpful for learning about this field and is one that I will likely refer to in the future when facing fracture problems.
