Fracture Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications – T.L. Anderson – 2nd Edition


This bestselling text/reference provides a comprehensive treatment of the of fracture mechanics. It presents theoretical background as well as practical applications, and it integrates materials science with solid mechanics. In the Second Edition, about 30% of the material has been updated and expanded; new technology is discussed, and feedback from users of the first edition has been incorporated.

With its combination of practicality, readability, and rigor that is characteristic of any truly authoritative reference and text, Fracture Mechanics: and quickly established itself as the most comprehensive guide to fracture available. It has been adopted by more than 100 universities and embraced by thousands of professional worldwide. Now in its edition, the continues to raise the bar in both scope and coverage. It encompasses theory and applications, linear and nonlinear fracture mechanics, solid mechanics, and materials science with a unified, balanced, and in-depth approach.
