Provides a thorough up-to-date account of the latest developments in materials science and engineering research and applications. The contributed papers cover all aspects of this important field, including material aspects of fracture in engineering practice, fatigue criteria and material characterisation, environmental effects on fracture, high temperature deformation and failure and mechanical properties and engineering applications of composite and non-metallic materials. Contains approximately 200 papers from acknowledged experts.


For materials scientists and technologists, mechanical and structural engineers.
