The Theory of Materials Failure 1st Edition

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0199662118]

A complete and comprehensive theory of failure is developed for homogeneous and isotropic materials. The full range of materials types are covered from very ductile metals to extremely brittle glasses and minerals. Two failure properties suffice to predict the general failure conditions under all states of stress. With this foundation to build upon, many other aspects of failure are also treated, such as extensions to anisotropic fiber composites, cumulative damage, creep and fatigue, and microscale and nanoscale approaches to failure.


A classical subject, accessible to students and researchers at all levels […] Once you open this concise and easy-to-read book, you may find it difficult to put the book down until you have finished very chapter. Materials Today Overall, this is an excellent book, extremely well written. It is resourceful, and the style of presentation is inspiring. I highly recommend it to readers. George Weng, Rutgers University This stimulating book was a pleasure to read. It will be of great interest to mature graduate students and researchers in solid mechanics. Journal of Applied Mathematics, This book, which is destined to become a classic in the discipline of the mechanics of solids, gives detailed derivations and solid scientific evaluations of failure criteria of various classes of materials. [] Professor Christensen joins the ranks of luminaries such as Professors Rodney Hill and Daniel Drucker as a legend in solid mechanics, through this excellent book.
