The book presents the principles of Damage Mechanics along with the latest research findings. Both isotropic and anisotropic damage mechanisms are presented. Various damage models are presented coupled with elastic and elasto-plastic behavior. The book includes two chapters that are solely dedicated to experimental investigations conducted by the authors. In its last chapter, the book presents experimental data for damage in composite materials that appear in the literature for the first time.
Researchers in Engineering, Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Materials Science. Also suitable for Graduate Students in Engineering Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Materials Science.
