The Behavior of Structures Composed of Composite Materials. Second Edition

The Behavior of Structures Composed of Composite Materials. Second Edition




Composite structures and products have developed tremendously since the publication of the first edition of this work in 1986. This new edition of the now classic 1986 text has been written to educate the engineering reader in the various aspects of mechanics for using composite materials in the design and analysis of composite structures and products. Areas dealt with include manufacture, micromechanical properties, structural design, joints and bonding and a much needed introduction to composite design philosophy. Each chapter is concluded by numerous problems suitable for home assignments or examination. A solution guide is available on request from the authors.
Reviews of the first edition:
This book is highly recommended both as a text for courses in structural aspects of composites, as well as for practicing structures engineers and researchers involved with composites. In fact, a copy of it belongs in the library of every composite structures designer, analyst, and researcher."
"An essential reference that every composites engineer should own"
