Mechanical Failure: temperature, stress, cyclic and loading effect
ISSUES TO ADDRESS...
- How do cracks that lead to failure form?
- How is fracture resistance quantified? How do the fracture
resistances of the different material classes compare?
- How do we estimate the stress to fracture?
- How do loading rate, loading history, and temperature
affect the failure behavior of materials?
