Abstract
The utility and robustness of the mechanics of materials is illustrated thr ough a review of several recent applications to fracture phenomena, includi ng adhesive failures, the role of plasticity in enhancing toughness in film s and multilayers, and crack growth resistance in ductile structural alloys . The commonalty among the approaches rests in a reliance on experiments to provide calibration of the failure process at the smallest scale. (C) 2000 Acta Metallurgica Inc.
