Summary and Info
This volume is made up of contributions from researchers in 22 countries. It aims to promote exchange of the latest experimental and theoretical results on structural integrity, durability and failure analysis; with the emphasis on fracture and damage mechanics.It covers a wide range of topics: fracture mechanics, failure analysis, corrosion, creep, non-linear problems, dynamic fracture, residual stress, environmental effects, crack propagation, repair techniques, composites, ceramics, polymers, metallic and concrete materials, probabilistic aspects, risk analysis, damage tolerance, fracture control, computer modelling methods (finite elements, boundary elements and meshless), and, microstructural and multiscale aspects.This work therefore presents an up-to-date overview of the latest developments in the fields of fracture and damage mechanics, and will be essential reading for anyone having an interest in this key research field.
