Mechanical Behavior of Materials (4th Edition)


File Size: 6.72 Mb

Designing machines, vehicles, and structures that are safe, reliable, and economical requires both efficient use of materials and assurance that structural failure will not occur. It is therefore appropriate for undergraduate engineering majors to study the mechanical behavior of materials, specifically such topics as deformation, fracture, and fatigue.

This book may be used as a text for courses on mechanical behavior of materials at the junior or senior undergraduate level, and it may also be employed at the first-year graduate level by emphasizing the later chapters. The coverage includes traditional topics in the area, such as materials testing, yielding and plasticity, stress-based fatigue analysis, and creep. The relatively new methods of fracture mechanics and strain-based fatigue analysis are also considered and are, in fact, treated in some detail. For a practicing engineer with a bachelor’s degree, this book provides an understandable reference source on the topics covered.

Emphasis is placed on analytical and predictive methods that are useful to the engineering designer in avoiding structural failure. These methods are developed from an engineering mechanics viewpoint, and the resistance of materials to failure is quantified by properties such as yield strength, fracture toughness, and stress–life curves for fatigue or creep. The intelligent use of materials property data requires some understanding of how the data are obtained, so their limitations and significance are clear. Thus, the materials tests used in various areas are generally discussed prior to considering the analytical and predictive methods.
