Fatigue of Materials III: Advances and Emergences in Understanding (1119041481) cover image


This volume contains papers presented in the third international symposium titled Fatigue of Materials: Advances and Emergences in Understanding held during the Materials Science and Technology 2014 meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, in October 2014. The book contains contributions from engineers, technologists, and scientists from academia, research laboratories, and industries. The 19 papers are divided into five topical areas:

Session 1: Aluminum Alloys

Session 2: Ferrous Materials I

Session 3: Ferrous Materials II

Session 4: Composite Materials

Session 5: Advanced Materials

Session 6: Modeling

The papers cover a broad spectrum of topics that represent the truly diverse nature of the subject of fatigue as it relates to the world of materials.
