Selected Peer Reviewed Papers From the Symposium 8 Fracture Mechanics From the XVIII International Materials Research, Cancún, Quintana Roo, August 16-20, 2009 MexicoeBook - 2010
This work comprises selected peer-reviewed papers on the topic of, "Fracture Mechanics".Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).The volume covers topics related to all aspects of the mechanics and phenomena of fracture, fatigue, fracture mechanics approach, strength of materials, failure analysis and general structural integrity. The aim of this collection was to bring together state-of-the-art developments related to fracture mechanics and in this it has succeeded admirably. Selected from the eighth of 23 symposia at the Congress, 14 papers explore issues related to the mechanics and phenomena of fracture, fatigue, the fractal mechanics approach, the strength of materials, failure analysis, and structural integrity in general. Among their topics are analyzing material properties for the numerical simulation of fatigue crack growth under variable amplitude loading, the self-affine crack pattern in filter paper sheets, applying the boundary element method to visco-plastic analysis, corrosion degradation in pipeline carbon steels subject to geothermal plant conditions, surface stress concentration analysis of shot-peened aluminum alloys, the mechanical behavior of ceramic and polymer composites reinforced with volcanic ashes, and a new theoretical approach to the fracture ductility of steels and its relation to microscopy structural characterization.
