Multi-scale modelling of composite material systems: the art of predictive damage modelling
This new book focuses on the fundamental understanding of composite materials at the microscopic scale, from designing micro-structural features, to the predictive equations of the functional behaviour of the structure for a specific end-application. The papers presented discuss stress and temperature-related behavioural phenomena based on knowledge of physics of microstructure and microstructural change over time.
