Description: This lecture demonstrates how to teach the principles and concepts of fracture mechanics as well as provide recommendations for practical applications; it provides necessary information for fatigue life estimations on the basis of fracture mechanics as a complementary method to the S-N concept. Background in engineering, materials and fatigue is required.
