Cleavage fracture: George R. Irwin symposium : proceedings of a symposium held at the 1997 TMS Fall Meeting, Indianapolis, Indiana, September 15-17, 1997
Minerals, Metals & Materials Society, 1997 - Science - 383 pages
This symposium, held during Materials Week '97 in Indianapolis, Indiana, September 14-18, 1997, was dedicated to Dr. George R. Erwin, Professor Emeritus of the University of Maryland. The symposium proceedings is a collection of 29 papers and 10 abstracts on the subjects of fracture mechanics; dislocation theory of fracture; atomistic fracture; micromechanical and microstructural modeling of cleavage; cleavage mechanisms, fractographic characterization; experimental techniques; and cleavage studies in metals, welds, intermetallics, ceramics, and minerals. The diverse topics reflect the wide range of disciplines that Professor Irwin has impacted through his pioneering work on fracture mechanics.
