Fracture of Materials: Moving Forwards
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The literature on fracture accumulated over the past few decades is abundant. It would be too overwhelmingly difficult to name every original contribution to the field by different individuals. Yet, a quick glance through even very limited part of the vast fracture literature in the past thirty or forty years or so, one is bound to come across one name - Yiu-Wing Mai, whose work covers fracture mechanics modeling on various toughening mechanisms, microstructure and property relations, processing and testing of polymers, ceramics, metals and their respective composites, and in recent years on nano- and bio- materials.
Professor Yiu-Wing Mai of the University of Sydney will celebrate his 60th birthday in the early 2006. This collection is dedicated to this special event in celebration of the achievements and contributions an extraordinary man has made towards the science of fracture and materials. The contributions presented have been classified into five categories: Fracture, Fatigue and Damage; Composites; Nano-composites; Biomaterials, Porous Materials, Ceramics and Concrete; and Indentation, Thin film and surface Treatment.
