Summary and Info
Providing a working knowledge of fatigue and fracture properties in actual engineering practice, this Handbook is especially valuable in evaluating test data and knowing the key variables that affect results. It will also give you a better understanding of fracture mechanics to aid you in life assessment and life extension of components. 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. Appendices contain comprehensive coverage of fatigue strength parameters and stress-intensity factors.
