About the Book

This Mechanical Behavior of Materials: Engineering Methods for Deformation, Fracture and Fatigue, 4th Edition is edited by Norman E. Dowling. This Fourth Edition textbook of Mechanical Behavior of Materials introduces the spectrum of mechanical behavior of materials, emphasizing practical engineering methods for testing structural materials to obtain their properties, and predicting their strength and life when used for machines, vehicles, and structures.

With its logical treatment and ready-to-use format, it is ideal for upper-level undergraduate students who have completed elementary mechanics of materials courses.


Specific and useful coverage in a single resource — Tackles materials testing, yield criteria, stress-based fatigue, fracture mechanics, crack growth, strain-based fatigue, and creep.
Thorough coverage of fatigue of materials — Addresses all three major approaches, including: stress-based approach; crack growth approach, and strain-based approach.
Realistic data — Employs actual laboratory data on real engineering materials in all illustrations, examples, and problems that involve materials data, giving students realistic impressions as to the actual values and behavior for the material involved.
Standard test methods for determining mechanical properties of materials — Summarizes methods for students and provides an understanding of the principles behind each test method. Example property data are given, as is a discussion of trends in the properties.
Substantial reference lists at the end of each chapter — Delivers additional information for student design or research projects, for practicing engineers needing more detailed information, or for instructors planning lectures where special detail is desired. Where appropriate, lists are subdivided to identify special categories, such as sources of stress analysis solutions or materials properties.
Comprehensive appendices — Appendix A offers a concise summary of equations for calculating stresses and deflections for simple engineering components such as beams, shafts, and pressure vessels. Appendix B provides an introduction to statistical data analysis and variation in materials properties.
Comprehensive instructor resources — Features text illustrations, Microsoft Excel® files for most of the example problems in the text, and solutions to end-of-chapter problems for which calculation or a difficult derivation is required.
