[yim055] Elementary Engineering Fracture Mechanics-Broek(1982)

It is certainly one of the best books on Fracture Mechanics. The book is very well structured for graduate level courses. Also, unlike a lot of books on Fracture Mechanics, the concepts are presented with an emphasis on their practical applications
