Strength and Fracture Criteria by Antanas Ziliukas


Shipping: £12 p&p UK / £24 p&p Worldwide

This publication presents an analysis of strength and fracture criteria. The author offers a new, more precise, evaluative theoretical decision procedure in regard to mechanical behaviour of materials and structures, which is proven through experiments. It shows the necessity to evaluate the mechanical behaviour of materials and structures in cases of a complicated state of stress and different anisotropicity. This new criteria of strength and fracture evaluation should be applied during the creation of new materials, structures and technologies. It is intended to the scientists of mechanics and construction engineering, together with graduate students and engineering staff.
