APPLIED MECHANICS REVIEWS

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.
