Int'l Symposium On Fracture Mechanics Proceedings Available

Proceedings of the International Symposium on Fracture Mechanics to be held at the George Washington University, September 11- 13, 1978, will be available through the University Press of Virginia.

This symposium, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, presents an overview of fracture problems in ship and aircraft structures, as well as an international review of the state-of-the-art in many areas of fracture mechanics research.

Included are results of both theoretical and experimental studies of fracture and fatigue in a variety of materials and structures. Various aspects of fracture are discussed for composites, polymers, ceramics and metallic materials under wide ranges of loading and environment. Fracture mechanics technology is reviewed through fracture case studies, discussions of recent advances in nondestructive flaw detection, and applications to nuclear reactors, gas turbines, and rocket motors.

This book, edited by Drs. N.

Perrone, H. Liebowitz, and D. Mulville, will be available in September.

It can be ordered from the University Press of Virginia, Box 3608, University Station, Charlottesville, Va. 22903, for $25.
