Fracture mechanics print that page


In modern materials science , fracture mechanics is an important tool in improving the mechanical performance of materials and components. It applies the physics of stress and strain , in particular the theories of elasticity and plasticity , to the microscopic crystallographic defects

Fracture toughness print that page

In materials science , fracture toughness is a property which describes the ability of a material containing a crack to resist fracture , and is one of the most important properties of any material for virtually all design applications. The fracture toughness of a material is determined

Applied mechanics print that page

Applied mechanics , as its name suggests, bridges the gap between physical theory and its application to technology . As such, applied mechanics is used in many fields of engineering , especially mechanical engineering . In this context, it is commonly referred to as engineering mechanics

Tooth Interior Fatigue Fracture print that page


The TIFF fracture surface has a distinct plateau in the central part along the tooth width and approximately mid-height of the tooth. In a close-up of the cross-section of the TIFF small wing cracks are observed. The presence of the wing crack indicates that the main crack has propagated from

Stress (mechanics) print that page

In continuum mechanics , stress is a measure of the internal forces acting within a deformable body . Quantitatively, it is a measure of the average force per unit area of a surface within the body on which internal forces act. These internal forces are a reaction to external forces applied

Strength of materials print that page

refers to the point on the engineering stress-strain curve corresponding to the stress that produces fracture . A material's strength is dependent on its microstructure. The engineering processes to which a material is subjected can alter this microstructure. The variety of strengthening mechanisms

Intergranular fracture print that page

An intergranular fracture is a fracture that follows the grains of the material. If the material has multiple lattice organizations, when one lattice ends and another begins, the fracture changes direction to follow the new grain. This results in a fairly jagged looking fracture with
