With the advent of the 80's there has been an increasing need for
analytic and numerical techniques, based on a thorough
understanding of microstructural processes, that express in a
manner suitable for practicing engineers the reliability of
components and structures that are being subjected to degradation
situations. Such situations fall within the framework offracture
mechanics, fatigue, corrosion fatigue and pitting corrosion.
Luckily, such techniques are now being developed and it was felt
timely to combine in one volume reports by the leaders in this
field who are currently making great strides towards solving these
problems. Hence the idea of this monograph was born and I am
pleased to be associated both with it and the contributors whose
chapters are included in this volume. A very large part of the
credit for this monograph must go to the authors who have taken
time out from their busy schedules to prepare their submissions.
They have all worked diligently over the last few months in order
to get their manuscripts to me on time and I sincerely thank them
for their help throughout the preparation of this volume.
