"...well written and has good quality figures....highly recommendable to graduate students, researchers, and engineers in research and developments who are working on and interested in the topics. The book should be certainly recommended to scientific libraries to purchase."
Thermal and mechanical fatigue problems are encountered in many engineering components, such as pressure vessels, high-temperature engines and interfaces in computer technology. This book describes modelling of thermal fatigue using the Dual Boundary Element Method. In this method both thermal and elasticity equations are written as regular and hypersingular equations, then applied on the crack surfaces. For thermal stress intensity factors a new one-point displacement extrapolation technique is described.
