Part of the Engineering Application of Fracture Mechanics book series (EAFM, volume 8)


Rational optimization of the performance of engineering structures requires that all pertinent physical quantities and parameters be defined unequivocally, and be determinable with satisfactory reliability and accuracy. For a design engineer, the measures of reliability and accuracy are the actual responses of the actual physical bodies, structures, and systems to the actual flow of energy, as discussed in Chapter 1.
