Advances in Fracture and Damage Mechanics VI
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This book presents contributions from researchers in 21 countries, and is based upon a forum meeting which promoted the exchange of the latest experimental and theoretical research results on structural integrity, durability and failure analysis; with the emphasis being placed on fracture and damage mechanics.
The resultant collection covers a wide range of topics: Fracture Mechanics, Fatigue, Failure Analysis, Corrosion, Creep, Non-linear Problems, Dynamic Fracture, Residual Stress, Environmental Effects, Crack Propagation, Repair Techniques, Composite Materials, Ceramics & Polymers, Metallic Materials, Concrete, Probabilistic Aspects, Risk Analysis, Damage Tolerance, Fracture Control, Computer Modelling Methods, Microstructural and Micromechanical Modelling.
This book therefore presents an up-to-date overview of the latest developments made in the fields of fracture and damage mechanics and will be essential reading for anyone having an interest in this key research field.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Presenting current research by engineers from 21 different countries, the papers of this proceedings were first presented at the Sixth International Conference on Fracture and Damage Mechanics, held in July 2007 in Madeira, Portugal. Topics include fatigue, failure analysis, corrosion, creep, nonlinear problems, dynamic failure, residual stress, among others, with many papers also included on modeling. Individual paper topics include cyclic plastic response and fatigue life, rim stress analysis of thin-rimmed gear, gearbox failure detection, crack propagation behavior of asphalt under uniaxial compression, and optimized steel truss design to resist lateral loads. The papers are not grouped according to topic, but author and keyword indexes are provided.
