    Fracture mechanics has become one of the preeminent disciplines utilized in the evaluation of structural integrity during the past 20 years. This publication covers the following topics: fatigue of engineering materials with principle applications to metals, stress-intensity factors; elastic-plastic fracture mechanics, and fracture mechanics and structure integrities.
