Micro- and Macromechanical Properties of Materials by Yichun Zhou, Yongli Huang, Li Yang

This is an English translation of a Chinese textbook that has been designated a national planned university textbook, the highest award given to scientific textbooks in China. The book provides a complete overview of mechanical properties and fracture mechanics in materials science, mechanics, and physics. It details the macro- and micro-mechanical properties of metal structural materials, nonmetal structural materials, and various functional materials. It also discusses the macro and micro failure mechanism under different loadings and contains research results on thin film mechanics, smart material mechanics, and more.


This book offers the most comprehensive and complete overview of mechanical properties and fracture mechanics in the field of materials science. Besides, it provides a complete and rigorous overview in the research areas of mechanics and materials sciences from the viewpoint of length scales. ... Moreover, this book focuses on connections between scientific theories, experiment methods and engineering applications so as to serve as a good manual for engineers and technicians on mechanics of materials. --Daining Fang, LTCS, College of Engineering, Peking University, Beijing, China

This book covers a wide range of topics from the fundamental aspects of mechanics to the mechanical properties of various materials including functional bulk materials and coating materials as well as thin films. I believe such a comprehensive book will be most helpful for the graduate students particularly in the mechanical engineering and materials science and engineering departments. --Jing-Feng Li, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

This is a textbook uniquely designed to interest students and researchers alike with an integrated method in dealing with material mechanical properties: macroscopic failure is explained with microscopic reasons. This is an interesting and surely good new perspective in understanding materials properties, functions and failure. Senior undergraduate students, research students and seasoned researchers in materials science and engineering would find it very useful. -Sam Zhang, Nanyang Technological University
