Metal Fatigue: Effects of Small Defects and Nonmetallic Inclusions, Second Edition, looks at factors that cause metals to fail through stress, corrosion or other processes, thereby helping readers predict the influence of small defects and non-metallic inclusions on fatigue with some level of accuracy. Emerging topics of high importance to metal fatigue are discussed in this updated edition, hence pointing the way for further research and innovation. The methodology is based on important and reliable results and may be usefully applied to other fatigue problems not directly detailed in this book.
This book is the most trusted and comprehensive guide on the subject available.
