  • Mode III Fracture in Rods Under Torsion: Experiments and Simulations 

    Zehnder, Alan (2016-08)
    Under torsional loading, circumferentially notched rods of a brittle material will fracture either in a spiral shape or along a nominally flat, but faceted surface. These facets are the result of multiple microcracks ...
  • Lecture Notes on Fracture Mechanics 

    Zehnder, Alan (2009-07-30)
    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 ...
