    Contains significant insight on the latest international developments in fracture mechanics. Central thermes are constraint issues and nonlinear fracture mechanics. Several papers also deal with the industry's most active topic of study, the two-parameter fracture mechanics approach to constraint and its impact on transition fracture toughness.

    9 sections cover:

    • Progress in Fracture Mechanics Research

    • Constraint Issues

    • Ductile to Brittle Transition

    • Elastic-Plastic Fracture

    • High Temperature Effects

    K Analysis

    • Applications

    • Fatigue

    • Nonmetallic Materials
