AM 7320 - Fracture Mechanics of Engineering Materials

Develops the tools necessary for fatigue and fracture control in structural materials. Continuum fracture mechanics principles are presented. Fracture modes are discussed from the interdisciplinary perspectives of continuum mechanics and microscopic plastic deformation/fracture mechanisms. Cleavage, ductile fracture, fatigue, and environmental cracking are included, with emphasis on micromechanical modeling. Cross-listed as MSE 732. Prerequisite: MSE 731 or instructor permission.
