About this Textbook

Concerned with the fundamental concepts and methods of fracture mechanics and micromechanics, this textbook primarily focuses on the mechanical description of fracture process. However, material specific aspects are also discussed. The presentation of continuum mechanical and phenomenological foundations is followed by an introduction into classical failure hypotheses. A major part of the book is devoted to linear elastic and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics. Further subjects are creep fracture, dynamic fracture mechanics, damage mechanics, probabilistic fracture mechanics, failure of thin films and fracture of piezoelectric materials. The book also contains an extensive introduction into micromechanics. 

The third edition is supplemented with various extensions, particularly with regard to the numerical treatment of fracture mechanical problems. Self-contained, well-illustrated and with further reading suggestions, this text serves as a graduate-level text and reference.


About the authors

Dietmar Gross studied Applied Mechanics and received his Engineering Diploma and Doctor of Engineering degree at the University of Rostock. He was Research Associate at the University of Stuttgart and since 1976 he is Professor of Mechanics at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. His research interests are mainly focused on modern solid mechanics including fracture processes on the macro and micro scale and the modeling of advanced materials.

Thomas Seelig studied Mechanics and received his PhD at TU Darmstadt. He spent some years as a researcher at the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials in Freiburg and since 2009 is Professor of Mechanics at Karlsruhe University. His research field is solid mechanics with an emphasis on fracture and micromechanics. His work has been concerned with the numerical simulation of dynamic fracture processes and currently focuses on the deformation and failure behaviour of polymer blends and composites.
