Progress in Fracture Mechanics: Fracture Mechanics Research and Technological Activities of Nations around the World is a collection of papers that presents the contemporary state of fracture mechanics research in different countries. This collection arises from the need to access various fracture mechanics materials in one publication, since fracture mechanics varies in parameters, methods of testing, and jargons. This text will be of great use to students, researchers, and practitioners of materials science.
