References and Conference Proceedings Towards the Understanding of Fracture Mechanics



The study of the structural integrity of components using fracture mechanics has become an integral part of new designs and is being used to reevaluate old designs. ASTM Subcommittee E24.06, concerned with the application of fracture mechanics to real hardware, is dedicated to the education of its members in the areas of fracture application. As a first step, a list of basic references towards the understanding of fracture mechanics has been compiled. Textbooks, ASTM Special Technical Publications (STPs), ASTM standards, national and international journals, symposia and conferences, and basic references in the development of fracture toughness, stress intensity factors, fatigue crack growth, fracture testing, fracture of brittle materials, and fractography are listed by sections in chronological order. This is a first effort by Subcommittee E24.06 to compile the references; an update will include brief abstracts/descriptions of the references.
