The Fracture of Brittle Materials: Testing and Analysis

ISBN: 978-0-470-15586-8
196 pages
March 2012
The Fracture of Brittle Materials: Testing and Analysis (0470155868) cover image
This book covers the relevant properties (toughness, strength, elastic modulus, microstructure, hardness), material types, fracture mechanics, measurement techniques, reliability and lifetime predictions, specifics of films/coatings, microstructural considerations, and material/test selection processes appropriate for practical analysis of brittle materials.  While providing the necessary basic concepts, the book primarily seeks to provide a practical, hands-on approach to the analysis of brittle materials.
