Lecture Notes on Fracture Mechanics
MetadataShow full item record
This book is written for students who want to understand, apply and contribute to the vast and growing field of fracture mechanics. The emphasis is on mechanics models for crack tip fields and energy flows. A brief discussion of computational fracture methods is given along with applied aspects such as fracture toughness testing and fracture criteria. As I intend to update the notes, I would be happy to take any suggestions or corrections and am open to collaboration to expand the coverage.

The domino effect : consequences and surgical treatment of a fractured cervical articular facet in a horse Gomez-Ibanez, Sara (2007-10-10)A two-year-old Palomino gelding was referred to Cornell on June 4, 2007 for ataxia of five weeks duration. A neurologic exam confirmed significant ataxia (2/4 forelimbs, 3/4 hindlimbs) and radiograps revealed a fracture ...
The repair of severely comminuted long bone fractures using stored cortical allografts in conjunction with fresh cancellous autografts Lowry, Nancy (1986-10-15)High velocity type injuries to the diaphyseal region of the long bones can often result in the literal explosion of the bone into numerous small fragments. Efforts to anatomically reconstruct such severely comminuted ...
