Book Description

Deformation and Fracture Mechanics of Engineering Materials provides a combined fracture mechanics-materials approach to the fracture of engineering solids with comprehensive treatment and detailed explanations and references, making it the perfect resource for senior and graduate engineering students, and practicing engineers alike.

 The 5th edition includes new end-of-chapter homework problems, examples, illustrations, and a new chapter on products liability and recall addressing the associated social consequences of product failure. The new edition continues to discuss actual failure case histories, and includes new discussion of the fracture behavior and fractography of ceramics, glasses, and composite materials, and a section on natural materials including bone and sea shells.

New co-authors Richard P. Vinci and Jason L. Hertzberg add their talent and expertise to broaden the book's perspective, while maintaining a balance between the continuum mechanics understanding of the failure of solids and the roles of the material's nano- and microstructure as they influence the mechanical properties of materials.

2Possibly missing pages and content in the international edition relative to the domestic edition
By Douglas Smith
Be wary of purchasing the international edition; I did and there we about 40 pages missing from the book - missing in the sense that I received a book in wonderful condition, no apparent damage anywhere, and the page numbers (and content) simply skip over two blocks of approximately 20 pages. This was a particularly painful realization for me because I needed the first of those two sections for my project.

5Great for Students or Recent Grads
By hunt1482
I graduated a little over two years ago and now am a practicing metallurgist. Although we learned plenty in school, there were still a few things missing here and there. This book was recommended by one of my professors. It'll give you more detail than other books and can give your brain a boost when you think you may have forgotten something.

4Excellent Reference
By Nathan D. Halcomb
This textbook reads more like an encyclopedia than a normal textbook. The presentation of the material is very thorough and accurate yet assumes a reader more mature in the material. I am using the text in a materials behavior course as a senior in mechanical engineering and many of my classmates have come to similar conclusions. Both my professor for the course and another in the same field also agreed the text is probably better suited as a reference rather than a stand-alone teaching tool. Overall, excellent text but maybe more useful for a more learned reader than I.
