Advances in Fracture and Damage Mechanics IX
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This special collection covers the latest theoretical, computational and experimental research on fracture and damage mechanics, as well as on structural integrity and durability.
As implied, this involves a remarkably wide range of topics: Fracture Mechanics, Failure analysis, Corrosion, Creep, Non-linear problems, Dynamic Fracture, Residual Stress, Environmental effects, Crack Propagation, Repair Techniques, Composites, Ceramics, Polymers, Metallic and concrete materials, Probabilistic Aspects, Risk Analysis, Damage Tolerance, Fracture Control, Computer Modeling Methods (Finite Element, Boundary Element and Meshless) and Microstructural and Multiscale Aspects.
This work therefore presents an up-to-date overview of the latest developments 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: Over 200 papers, edited from their original presentation, at the 9th International Conference on Fracture and Damage Mechanics, present findings on fracture and damage mechanics in such contexts as corrosion, non-linear problems, residual stress, ceramics, risk analysis, computer modeling methods, and microsctructural and multi-scale aspects. A sampling of individual papers turns up evaluating the strength of bending fatigue in a notched structural steel sheet, the numerical investigation of penetration performance of segmented rod projectiles with various connectors, image-based displacement vector estimation methods around the fatigue crack tip, using neural networks to evaluate the reliability of structures, fatigue properties of dynamically loaded self-compacting concrete, and fatigue traffic loading for highway bridges in China.
