Elements of solid mechanics -- Classical failure hypotheses -- Micro and macro phenomena of fracture -- Linear fracture mechanics -- Elastic-plastic fracture mechanics -- Creep fracture -- Dynamic fracture mechanics -- Micromechanics and homogenization -- Damage mechanics -- Probabilistic fracture mechanics.
Concerned with the fundamental concepts and methods of fracture mechanics and micromechanics, Fracture Mechanics primarily focuses on the mechanical description of fracture process; however, material specific aspects are also discussed. The presentation of continuum mechanical and phenomenological foundations is followed by an introduction into classical failure hypotheses. A major part of the book is devoted to linear elastic and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics. Further subjects are creep fracture, dynamic fracture mechanics, damage mechanics, probabilistic fracture mechanics, failure of thin films and fracture of piezoelectric materials. The book also contains an extensive introduction into micromechanics. Self-contained and well-illustrated, this text serves as a graduate-level text and reference.
