Comprehensive Structural Integrity, Second Edition, a Ten Volume Set, provides material scientists and engineers with an authoritative and complete one-stop reference tool on all aspects of this exciting field. The book puts special emphasis on the interaction between mechanics and materials and structural integrity applications. Because of the interdisciplinary and applied nature of the work, it is an indispensable resource for mechanical engineers and materials scientists from both academic and industrial backgrounds, including bioengineering, interface engineering and nanotechnology. Structural Integrity is the ability of a component, structure or asset to operate properly under the pressure of a load, including the weight of the asset itself. It’s a vital consideration for structural engineering: essentially the science and technology which can prevent disaster.

Key Features

  • Provides a one-stop resource for researchers with its comprehensive coverage of theoretical and practical aspects of structural integrity
  • Covers detailed information that will benefit a wide range of readers in this multidisciplinary field
  • Presents case studies that are important for practical applications and industries such as construction/engineering, aircraft, energy (nuclear, oil and gas, power engineering)
  • Includes new chapters that focus on recent developments in materials engineering e.g., advanced composite materials, bio/bio-medical engineering, nano- and micro- structured materials


Researchers in all areas of materials science and materials engineering, especially those working in multi-/inter-disciplinary fields. Advanced university students and their teaching faculty in materials science and materials engineering. Professional engineers in industry e.g. aerospace, bio-engineering, energy engineering
