The papers in this collection cover a diverse range of topics on the topic of fatigue of materials. The editors have grouped the papers into five sections.
Sections 1 and 2 contain papers that (i) review the current state of knowledge both related and relevant to the subject of fatigue behavior of materials, and (ii) present new, innovative, and emerging techniques for experimental evaluation of the fatigue behavior.
Sections 3 and 4 focus on advanced materials that are used in performance-critical applications in the aerospace and automotive industries, such as the alloys of titanium, nickel, aluminum, and magnesium.
Section 5 presents papers relating to other materials of engineering interest, such as iron and steel, polymer, rubber, and composites.
This volume contains papers presented in the third international symposium titled Fatigue of Materials: Advances and Emergences in Understanding held during the Materials Science and Technology 2014 meeting. The book contains contributions from engineers, technologists, and scientists from academia, research laboratories, and industries. The papers are divided into six topical areas:
Session 1: Aluminum Alloys
Session 2: Ferrous Materials I
Session 3: Ferrous Materials II
Session 4: Composite Materials
Session 5: Advanced Materials
Session 6: Modeling
The papers cover a broad spectrum of topics that represent the truly diverse nature of the subject of fatigue as it relates to the world of materials.
