Description

One of the first books new engineers and technicians should read. This new edition of the perennial best seller preserves the core of the previous editions, focusing on the metallurgical and materials evaluation for failure mode identification. Comprehensive information covering the basic principles and practices are clearly explained.

Explanations of recent technical advances and new analysis tools have been added:

  • Fatigue striation counting, modeling, and crack rate prediction
  • Failures caused by microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)
  • Failures in elevated temperature environments
