Virtual Testing and Predictive Modeling: For Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics Allowables provides an overview of cost and time efficient methods in generating the fatigue and fracture data of industrial structural parts. Readers will find a systematic introduction to virtual testing to generate fatigue and fracture allowables through two useful techniques: the conventional continuum mechanics approach, and the utilization of multiscale modeling and simulation techniques to predict materials’ properties. In addition, a chapter devoted to the functionalization process covers the current approach to this technique, which strengthens interface durability through bonding dissimilar materials. Coverage of verification methods, used with devices such as the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and the Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), are also described, which motivate discussion of the fundamental structure and deformation processes of nanoscale materials. The virtual testing continuum approach already plays a crucial role in the life assessment of important manufactured structural parts in the aerospace, automotive, aircraft and defense industries when data is inaccessible to engineers. Virtual Testing and Predictive Modeling: For Fatigue and Fracture Mechanics Allowables provides a unique applications-focus view into these valuable methods, filling a critical void in references currently available.
