State-of-the-art research on the advancement of polymeric composite durability from experts in materials science and the mechanics of materials. 15 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers examine such topics as: Analytical models that predict long-term performance Thermomechanical procedures to improve mechanical performance The development of a methodology to predict remaining strength and life in polymeric co
Covers fatigue crack closure from materials characterization to practical application in industry. Peer reviewed papers provide information and experiences on new crack-closure measurement techniques, advanced crack-closure analysis methods, and practical applications of the crack-closure concept to predict crack-propagation lives of aerospace and automotive components under complex load histories.
This publication presents research data covering corrosion and fracture mechanics of metals, primarily steel, aluminum, and titanium. The papers presented are primarily research in nature although several papers deal with application technology. The papers address: mechanics and basic metal characteristics, the effects of the environments of metals and crack initiation and propagation, engineering design considerations, and electrochemical con
