Fatigue Crack Growth : Mechanics, Behavior & Prediction, Hardback Book

Fatigue Crack Growth : Mechanics, Behavior & Prediction Hardback

Edited by Alphonse F. Lignelli


Fatigue is one of the primary reasons for the failure of structural components.

The life of a fatigue crack has two parts, initiation and propagation.

Dislocations play a major role in the fatigue crack initiation phase.

It has been observed in laboratory testing that after a large number of loading cycles dislocations pile up and form structures called persistent slip bands (PSB).

Fatigue crack growth is a crucial subject in the aircraft, railroad and other transportation industries as well as in the biomedical industry.

This book presents the latest research in the field.
