STP 1297 is the first publication of its kind to explore how increased heat impacts the fatigue and fracture behavior of advanced metals. 12 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers cover the following key topics:
Integration of damage evolution, from the most general distributed form to the slightest crack tip
High-resolution experimental exploration of the fatigue and fracture processes
Thoroughly tested, high quality quantitative prediction models
Next-generation structural metal performance and component life prediction.
A critical resource for metallurgists, mechanical engineers in aerospace, researchers involved with military and primary metals production technologies and power generation specialists.
