Thirty-eight peer-reviewed papers cover the latest research on fracture mechanics, including fracture, fatigue, residual stress, creep, creep/fatigue, constraint and stress corrosion and links them to concepts used in structural integrity assessment. Furthermore this publication does not restrict itself to metallic materials but is applicable to polymers, composites as well as inhomogeneous materials. These papers, written by nationally and internationally recognized authors, cover the general areas of modeling, testing, and validation in crack dominant related research.
Other topics cover experimental results coupled to modeling techniques of linear, non-linear, time independent and dependant behavior of cracked geometries of a range of materials. Papers relating to residual stress, crack tip constraint and probabilistic methods of analyses also highlight the importance of developing these fields for future improvements in life assessment methods.
