Description

Reviews

A team of scholars united for this project in order to provide an almanac of some of the more recent achievements in fracture science and to compile a topical reference book with first-hand information on the methods and ideas in this field. Every section was written by the originator of or one of the top experts in the corresponding area, with emphasis on the most dynamic portion of this fast-growing and challenging science. This volume is suitable as a supplementary book for advanced courses on fracture and materials science.

"… this is a fascinating and valuable book, full of information, problems, ideas and suggestions for future work." -- Paul Andrew Martin, Mathematical Reviews-Issue 99

"Written for graduate-level students, this book will make a welcome addition to any university engineering or science library, particularly those with graduate <196> level programs." -- Kelly M. Jordan, American Reference Books Annual 2000

"Cherepanov weaves a dramatic tale of fracture mechanics narrated through articles and commentaries interspersed with some interesting historical, biographical and anecdotal information on people and events…Cherepanov's single volume 870-page encyclopaedia is like a bird's-eye view of the vast landscape of fracture mechanics. This encyclopaedia emanates a fresh and rich mathematical flavour of Soviet contributions to the subject making up nearly 40% of the pages." -- Current Science, Vol. 76, No. 11, June 10, 1999.
