Research and Markets: A Report on the Advances in Understanding the Fatigue Behavior of Materials.
Special topic volume with invited papers only.
This special-topic book consists of a collection of technical papers assembled under the rubric of "Advances in Understanding the Fatigue Behavior of Materials". The focus of "Fatigue Behavior of Materials" centers on the changes in properties that occur upon applying cyclic loads. Following its recognition and increasing importance during the latter half of the nineteenth century, this branch of study has focused upon the study and rationalization of the engineering approaches that are commonly used to design against the initiation and/or propagation of the fatigue damage which would otherwise culminate in catastrophic failure.
The issue is divided into four sections. Section I consists of a collection of papers which focuses on ferrous alloys. Section II consists of papers with the focus on non-ferrous alloys. Section III concentrates on shape-memory alloys and bulk metallic glasses. Finally, Section IV considers alternative approaches to the study and understanding of fatigue behavior as it relates to materials and structures.
This work could well serve as an advanced guide to researchers involved in the study, understanding and documentation of the fatigue behavior of materials.
