Description: This book comprehensive and critical presents a overview of the mechanics of cracks and fracture. Fresh perspectives are given, highlighting central analytical methods and their applications as well as general theoretical and experimental results and their practical application. Fundamental concepts are introduced, considering the specific field of cracks and fracture as well as general mathematical models and analytic methods. It also discusses physical and engineering aspects of crack propagation and fracture. Cracks and Fracture will be a valuable resource for researchers and graduate students in engineering fields related to the sciences of mechanics and materials, in geophysics and in mathematical physics.

The book consists of nine chapters. In two introductory chapters, physical processes in the vicinity of the crack edge are discussed and the fracture process is described. Chapter 3 develops general basic concepts and relations in crack mechanics, such as path-independent integrals, stress intensity factors and energy flux into the crack edge region. Chapters 4 to 7 deal with elastostatic cracks, stationary or slowly moving elastic-plastic cracks, elastodynamic crack mechanics and elastoplastic crack dynamics. Chapter 8 and 9 consider physical and engineering aspects of fracture, including dynamic fracture mechanics.
