Editorial Reviews

Review

."..unified treatment renders the book very accessible and greatly helps the reader assemble the pieces...the text is very well supported by numerous pictures and diagrams and by a limited series of references which should assist interested readers to move beyond the introductory notions described in the book...highly recommended for any graduate student, engineer, or scientist who would like to gain a first but significiant view 'of the other side of the brittle fracture probem.'" Philippe Geubelle, Pageoph

Book Description

Originally published in 1975, this advanced text for higher degree materials science students and researchers concerned with the strength of highly brittle covalent-ionic solids, principally ceramics, has been thoroughly revised and expanded.

Format: Paperback
Though not a giant one, Lawn's piercing thoughts into the essence of brittle fracture can be clearly read and transferred (especiaaly for those who have studied and indulged into fracture like me). From the beginning, Griffith's spirits are extracted from his classic papers and put as a corner stone through out the book. Unlike many other authors, the author apparently appreciates and must have digged deeply into Griffith's paper. The remaining chapters illustrate it in an enlightening way, i.e., the subjects are treated as concepts-faced, not a pile-ups of entangling "dislocations" (facts). At least for me, some concepts had firmly taken their roots in my mind after reading. Not the least, the references given guides one fracturing through the literature and aims at providing some classic papers in the field for further study. They really take effect! I am at least not missed in library.
