Description

Presenting a wealth of completely revised examples and new information, Introduction to Composite Materials Design, Second Edition greatly improves on the bestselling first edition. It incorporates state-of-the-art advances in knowledge and design methods that have taken place over the last 10 years, yet maintains the distinguishing features and vital content of the original. The author distributes 78 fully developed examples throughout the book to illustrate the application of presented analysis techniques and design methodology, making this textbook ideally suited for self-study. Requiring no more than senior undergraduate-level understanding of math and mechanics, it remains an invaluable tool for students in the engineering disciplines, as well as for self-studying, practicing engineers.


Key Features:-

  • Introduces new background topics, including design for reliability and fracture mechanics
  • Includes new information on Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM)
  • Incorporates major advances in prediction of unidirectional-lamina properties
  • Covers all aspects of preliminary design, relegating finite element analysis to a separate textbook
  • Presents in-depth analysis of composites reinforced with plain, twill, and satin weaves, as well as
  • Expands the analysis of thin walled beams with newly developed examples and MATLAB® code
