Praised by readers for its usefulness, this book covers the entire area of mechanical behavior of materials from a practical engineering viewpoint, providing a single-source introductory analysis with specific coverage on materials testing, yield criteria, stress-based fatigue, fracture mechanics, crack growth, strain-based fatigue, and creep. Explains test methods and the principles behind them, and explores engineering methods for predicting strength and life, with real-date worked examples. Completely updates discussions on fracture mechanics, stress-based fatigue, and creep, and adds three new appendices; one that reviews useful topics from elementary mechanics of materials, one that considers statistical variation in materials properties, and a third that aids in locating materials property information in the tables found in various chapters. Updated end-of-chapter references lead to sources of materials data and to more detailed information. For the mechanical engineer, materials engineer, aeronautical engineer, structural engineer, design engineer, or test engineer.
