Solution of Crack Problems: The Distributed Dislocation Technique (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)

Solution of Crack Problems: The Distributed Dislocation Technique (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)This book describes a family of state-of-the-art numerical and semi-analytical techniques for determining stress intensity factors for cracks; the quantities which determine and control the fatigue life of engineering components. Fatigue problems are dominated by behaviour of the crack when it is short, and in the neighbourhood of the source of nucleation, as this is where the majority of the life is used up. A knowledge of crack-tip stress inten…

Problems of Mixed Mode Crack Propagation (Engineering Applications of Fracture Mechanics)

Problems of Mixed Mode Crack Propagation (Engineering Applications of Fracture Mechanics)This is not just another book on fracture mechanics. In recent years, there have been many books published on this subject in an attempt to assess the state of the art and its applications. The majority of the work dealt with energy release rate or critical stress intensity factor and is applicable only to fracture toughness testing. The main reason for this restriction is that the energy release concept cannot easily be extended to mixed mode fr…

Fracture Mechanics: Inverse Problems and Solutions (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)

Fracture Mechanics: Inverse Problems and Solutions (Solid Mechanics and Its Applications)This book presents, in a unified manner, a variety of topics in Continuum and Fracture Mechanics: energy methods, conservation laws, mathematical methods to solve two-dimensional and three-dimensional crack problems. Moreover, a series of new subjects is presented in a straightforward manner, accessible to under-graduate students. Emphasizing physical or experimental back-grounds, then analysis and theoretical results, this monograph is intended …
