A compilation of leading work in multiaxial fatigue
Multiaxial Fatigue and Design is a collection of 32 papers presented at the Fourth International Conference on Biaxial/Multiaxial Fatigue. Compiled by the ESIS, these papers represent the work being done at the very forefront of the field, reviewed by international experts and condensed into a single-volume reference. Covering the mechanical behavior of materials, low cycle fatigue, high cycle fatigue, and design, this collection provides a comprehensive view of the current body of knowledge from a variety of perspectives and contexts.
