Summary

The discipline fracture mechanics was development to solution of problems of ultimate stage of bodies with cracks. The fracture mechanics is interdisciplinar science. This connets knowledge of physical metalurgy with continuum mechanics. The students will be acquainted with the basis of Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics and Elastic Plastic Fracture Mechanics. The great attention is devoted too the problems of High-Cycle Fatigue and Low-Cycle Fatigue of materials.
