His industrial experience combined with academic professorship enables him to change the once ‘academic knowledge’ into ‘daily useful knowledge’.
This book is written for non-mechanics readers. It gives very simple basic principle written for ordinary audience. It emphasizes on the basic principle and philosophy of fracture mechanics so that readers who plan to adopt fracture mechanics in their areas can do it the smart way. It also discusses about the limitation so that ordinary engineers do not implement linear elastic fracture mechanics beyond its limitations. It has plenty examples on the simple applications of linear elastic fracture mechanics outside the mechanics world. This book is filling the gap between the fracture mechanics used in the ‘mechanics world’ and the fracture mechanics used ‘outside mechanics world’. It is also perfect for researchers outside mechanics who want to incorporate fracture mechanics in their works. His industrial experience combined with academic professorship enables him to change the once ‘academic knowledge’ into ‘daily useful knowledge’.
