Fatigue of Metallic Materials (2nd Revised Edition) (Material Science Monographs, Volume 71)
Filenote | OCR'd, TOC built, PaginatedThis book reviews problems in the mechanical behaviour ofcyclically loaded metallic materials, primarily with regard to thenature of the fatigue process. The first edition of the bookappeared in 1980. The present second editionrepresents a revised form of the original book and also coversrecent developments in the field. As the book focuses onphysical-metallurgical aspects, it occupies a unique and importantposition in the technical literature, which has so far been devotedmainly to engineering metal fatigue problems and their technicalsolution in specific practical cases. The book provides a compactreview of current knowledge on physical metallurgical processesthat accompany and affect the fatigue of metallic materials, andalso presents the background for applying the new results topractical designing and to the selection of materials inengineering practice.The authors present an updated review of results from countriesboth in the east and the west and cover a relatively large field ina concise manner. The work will be of value to research workers andstudents following advanced and post-graduate courses in the fieldsof materials science and mechanical engineering.
