Crack growth is a complex phenomenon and difficult to model without assumed simplifications. In recent years, there has been an increasing realization that advanced computational methods such as the Finite Element Method, the Boundary Element Method and Mesh Free Methods can be used to simulate crack growth in complex structural parts. This special issue contains original papers written by active researchers in the field of computational fracture mechanics. The aim is to inform those in the fracture mechanics community who might not be at the forefront of computational research of the recent developments and techniques available and the wide range of applications for which solutions are now possible.

Description: The diverse mix of papers presented here, reflect the breadth of activities in the cost affordable use of titanium and emerging applications. The opening overview paper, by the editors, attempts to present a broad view of present and projected titanium cost reduction, both in titanium production and in subsequent processing. What is particularly clear is that the impetus for broadening markets for titanium is very much dependent on cost reduction methods, particularly cost sensitive industrial applications such as the auto industry.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The papers are grouped into four chapters and these are: Overview and Low Cost Processing, Powder Consolidation and Characterization, Creative Processing and Low Cost Materials and Properties.
