Periodical and volume:
Key Engineering Materials Vol. 827
The volume is a collection of edited papers presented at the 18th International Conference on Fracture and Damage Mechanics (FDM 2019), which was held in Rodos Palace Hotel, Rhodes, Greece. The papers cover a wide range of topics related to fracture and damage mechanics. Studies on failure analysis, fracture mechanics, composites, micromechanics, multiscale modeling as well as probabilistic aspects, computer modeling methods, and non-linear problems are presented for a wide range of structural materials, both monolithic and composite. Studies include fatigue, corrosion, creep, dynamic fracture and durability together with damage tolerance aspects. Selected papers on multiscale and multifunctional composites have been presented together with works on structural health monitoring, remaining life assessment methodologies and predictive modeling.
