Presents a straightforward and unified interpretation of the basic concepts and underlying principles of the discipline of fracture mechanics. A general survey of the field would serve no purpose other than to give a collection of references and outline equations and results. A realistic application of fracture mechanics could not be made without a sound understanding of the fundamentals. The book is self-contained, the presentations are concise and each topic can be understood by advanced undergraduates in material science and continuum mechanics. Each chapter contains illustrative example problems and homework problems. A total of about 50 example problems and more than 200 unsolved problems are included in the book. "Fracture Mechanics" contains 10 chapters. The first, introductory chapter gives a brief account of some characteristic failures that could not be explained by the traditional criteria.
