dc.description.abstractThis 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.en_US
