This book, based on the analogy between contact mechanics and fracture mechanics proposed by the author twenty years ago, starts with a treatment of the surface energy and tension of solids and surface thermodynamics. The essential concepts of fracture mechanics are presented with emphasis on the thermodynamic aspects. Readers will find complete analytical results and detailed calculations for cracks submitted to pressure distributions and the Dugdale model. Contact mechanics and the contact and adherence of rough solids are also covered.
