Perspectives in Creep Fracture is a collection of studies that covers the advances in the analysis of the mechanisms involved in the process of creep fracture. The book presents nine articles that present data and discuss the theoretical advancement in the field. Fracture-mechanism maps and their construction for f.c.c. metals and alloys / M.F. Ashby, C. Gandhi, and D.M. Taplin --Fracture-mechanism maps for materials which cleave / C. Gandhi and M.F. Ashby --The nucleation of cavities by plastic deformation / S.H. Goods and L.M. Brown --Non-equilibrium models for diffusive cavitation of grain interfaces. Perspectives in Creep Fracture by Michael F. Ashby, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. sensible to devote this short summary of Creep Fracture to cavitation. There has been, in the past, a variety of reviews of Creep Fracture by Cocks and Ashby , Nix , and Needleman and Rice  and a series of articles in a single issue of a journal [–], chapter by Cadek  and particularly books.

This would depend upon the volume fraction of glass phase, vg, and the dihedral angle. Creep is time-dependent deformation under constant load or stress. It has been recognised as an engineering challenge for more than a century, and traditionally, the key design parameter has been ‘time to fracture’ as a function of applied stress and recently, in applications, such as close-tolerance turbines and miniaturised equipment, ‘time to a critical strain’ has.

Creep rates of silicides are shown to be very sensitive to grain size even in the power-law creep regime with grain size exponent of the order of five and above. In addition, the results show that with increase in volume fraction of reinforcements there is a decrease in creep rates for volume percentages less than 25%.
