  • High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites 6by Gustavo J. Parra-Montesinos; Hans W. Reinhardt; A. E. Naaman

    Springer 2012; US$ 229.00

    High Performance Fiber Reinforced Cement Composites (HPFRCC) represent a class of cement composites whose stress-strain response in tension undergoes strain hardening behaviour accompanied by multiple cracking, leading to a high strain prior to failure. The primary objective of this International Workshop was to provide a compendium of up-to-date information... more...

  • Fatigue of Beta Processed and Beta Heat-treated Titanium Alloysby Russell Wanhill; Simon Barter

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    This publication reviews most of the available literature on the fatigue properties of I annealed Ti-6Al-4V and titanium alloys with similar microstructures. The focus is on I processed and I heat-treated alloys because I annealed Ti-6Al-4V has been selected for highly loaded and fatigue-critical structures, including the main wing-carry-through bulkheads... more...

  • Fracture Mechanicsby Alan T. Zehnder

    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    Fracture mechanics is a vast and growing field. This book develops the basic elements needed for both fracture research and engineering practice. The emphasis is on continuum mechanics models for energy flows and crack-tip stress- and deformation fields in elastic and elastic-plastic materials. In addition to a brief discussion of computational fracture... more...

  • Continuum Damage Mechanicsby Sumio Murakami

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    Recent developments in engineering and technology have brought about serious and enlarged demands for reliability, safety and economy in wide range of fields such as aeronautics, nuclear engineering, civil and structural engineering, automotive and production industry. This, in turn, has caused more interest in damage mechanics and its engineering... more...
