In this second edition, which is the result of numerous revisions, updates and additions, the authors cover the basic concepts of fracture mechanics for both the linear elastic and elastic-plastic regimes. Contents include: An overview, elastic stress field approach, crack tip plasticity, energy balance approach, LEFM testing, basic aspects of elastic-plastic fracture mechanics, EPFM testing, failure assessment using EPFM, fatigue crack growth, sustained load fracture, dynamic crack growth and arrest, mechanisms of fracture in metallic materials, the influence of material behavior in fracture mechanics properties.
