MME 504: Materials Fracture and Failure Analysis

Type of failures, buckling, fracture in brittle and ductile materials, fractography ,mixed mode, and fatigue failures environmental effects, wear, creep, and yielding phenomena ,high strain rate failures, case histories of component failures. Fracture mechanisms and mechanics of solid materials. Topics include: nature of brittle aruLductile fracture, macro-phenomena and micro- mechanisms of failure of various materials, mechanisms of fatigue failure: crack nucleation and propagation, Griffith theory, stress field at crack tips, stress intensity factor and fracture toughness, crack opening displacement, energy principle and the J-integral, fracture mechanics in fatigue, da/dN curves and their significance. Practical examples of fatigue analysis and fundamentals of non-destructive testing.
