3.35 Fracture and Fatigue
Linear elastic and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics. Theory and asymptotic analysis of crack-tip fields. Experimental methods. Microstructural effects on fracture in metals, ceramics, polymers, thin films, biological materials, and composites. Toughening mechanisms. Crack growth resistance and creep fracture. Interface fracture mechanics. Fatigue damage and dislocation substructures in single crystals. Stress- and strain-life approach to fatigue. Fatigue crack growth models and mechanisms. Variable amplitude fatigue. Corrosion fatigue. Case studies of fracture and fatigue in structural, bioimplant, and microelectronic components. Limited to 10.
This class has 3.032 as a prerequisite.
3.35 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. Dao.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
