ENGG 230 - Fatigue and Fracture

Description

A study of the fracture and fatigue behavior of a wide range of engineering materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, biological materials, and composites). Topics include work of fracture, fracture mechanics (linear elastic, elastic-plastic and plastic), fracture toughness measurements, crack stability, slow crack growth, environmentally assisted cracking, fatigue phenomenology, the Paris Law and derivatives, crack closure, residual stress effects, and random loading effects. These topics will be presented in the context of designing to avoid fracture and fatigue.
