Promotional Information

This book is a monograph on the brittle fracture of ceramic materials, in a unified continuum, microstructural and atomistic treatment.


."..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.'"
