Brittle Fracture Course
|Course Field:||Structural Failure|
Metals can fail by ductile or brittle fracture. Metals that fracture with a relatively small or negligible amount of plastic strain exhibit brittle fracture, and cracks in this case propagate rapidly.
This course discusses:
- Brittle fracture mechanism
- Stress-temperature curves
- Crack initiation and propagation
- Fracture toughness
