This critical collection examines a range of topics in fracture and fatigue, including environmental and loading effects in fracture and fatigue and DIC and fracture, as presented in early findings and case studies from the Proceedings of the 2013 Annual Conference on Experimental and Applied Mechanics. The collection includes papers in the following general technical research areas:
• Microstructural Effects in Fatigue & Fracture
• Fracture of Interfaces
• Fracture of Composites and Interface Cracks
• Fatigue & Fracture: Environmental & Loading Eff ects
• Fracture & Digital Image Correlation
Fracture and Fatigue, Volume 7: Proceedings of the 2013 Annual Conference on Experimental and Applied Mechanics is the seventh volume of eight from the Conference.
