About the Author

The Author has been working for 20 years in the Structures and Materials Laboratory of the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR, Amsterdam, and for another 20 years in the Structures and Materials Laboratory of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering of the Delft University of Technology. His experience covers a large variety of fatigue projects varying from fundamental investigations to practical problems such as fatigue of joints, service-simulation testing of full-scale structures and accidents investigations. This is reflected in the present book. The Author is well-known for a large number of publications, among others the `Four lectures on fatigue crack growth' in Engineering Fracture Mechanics. The present book covers lectures of a much wider and integrated scope.
