Book: JF Knott and PA Withey, Worked examples in fracture mechanics, Institute of Materials, 1993, reprinted 1998.
A student text book introducing the reader to the basics of linear elastic fracture mechanics from the Griffith Relationship, through the development of G and K, to practical engineering situations. An in-depth account is given of the procedure for making a fracture toughness measurement in accordance with BS 7448.1991. There is a major section on elastic/plastic fracture mechanics and the calculation of CTOD and J for ductile materials. The final chapter treats fatigue growth, and its application to the calculation of lifetimes for structures containing cracks. ISBN 0 901716 28 6. Also translated into Chinese, ISBN 7 03 004459 2.
