Book Description

This ebook; Mechanical Behavior and Fracture of Engineering Materials (PDF) presents the theoretical concepts of strain and stress; as well as the strengthening and fracture mechanisms of engineering materials at an accessible level for non-expert students; but without losing scientific rigor. This volume fills the gap between the specialized books on mechanical behavior; physical metallurgy and material science; and engineering ebooks on the strength of materials; structural design; and materials failure. Therefore it is intended for college students and practicing engineers that are learning for the first time the mechanical behavior and failure of engineering materials or wish to deepen their understanding of these topics.

The ebook includes specific topics seldom covered in other books; such as: how to determine a state of stress; the relation between stress definition and mechanical design; or the theory behind the methods included in industry standards to assess defects or to determine fatigue life. The emphasis is put into the link between scientific knowledge and practical applications; including solved problems of the main topics; such as stress and strain calculation. Mohr’s Circle; yield criteria; fracture mechanics; fatigue and creep life prediction. The volume covers both the original findings in the field of mechanical behavior of engineering materials and the most recent and widely accepted theories and techniques applied to this topic. At the beginning of some selected topics that by the author’s judgment are transcendental for this field of study; the prime references are given; as well as a brief biographical semblance of those who were the pioneers or original contributors. Finally; the intention of this book is to be a textbook for graduate and undergraduate courses on Mechanical Behavior; Mechanical Metallurgy; and Materials Science; as well as a consulting and/or training material for practicing engineers in the industry that deal with mechanical design; materials selection; material processing; structural integrity assessment; and for researchers that incursion for the first time in the topics covered in this book.
