The examples will include fracture in large components such as aircraft, bridges and pressure vessels and also in bones and in soft materials and human tissue. Prerequisite: Graduate standing in Civil, Mechanical or Biomedical Engineering or consent of the instructor. (Typically offered: Fall and Spring)
This course is cross-listed with BMEG 5953, CVEG 5953.

MEEG 5963. Advanced Fracture Mechanics and Structural Integrity. 3 Hours.

This course provides an in-depth treatment of advanced topics in fracture mechanics such as stress analysis of cracks under elastic-plastic loading, crack initiation and growth under elastic-plastic and time-dependent creep and creep-fatigue conditions. The course emphasizes fundamental underpinnings of nonlinear fracture mechanics and its use in material evaluation and life prediction methodology for structural components. Micro-mechanics of fracture and crack growth processes are also covered. Prerequisite: MEEG 5953, or BMEG 5953, or CVEG 5953 or equivalent, or instructor consent. (Typically offered: Fall and Spring)
