Engineering Applications of Fracture Analysis is a record of the proceedings of the First National Conference on Fracture, held at Johannesburg, South Africa in November 1979. The papers presented in the conference provide a general picture of fracture studies in South Africa. The contributions cover the theoretical analyses of the influence of dislocation stresses in initiating fracture; practical design of steel components exposed to high-temperature environments; problems encountered in South African industry, such as rock drilling equipment failures, unwanted rock fractures in mines and safety problems in nuclear reactors; fracture study techniques; and formal applications of fracture mechanics. The book will be of interest to metallurgists, engineers, and materials specialists.
