John Wiley & Sons, Jul 11, 2006 - Science - 562 pages
The updated edition of the cornerstone introduction to analyzing composite materials.
Analysis and Performance of Fiber Composites, Third Edition is a revision of the classic fundamentals book on composite materials. It provides a complete, up-to-date treatment of the mechanics, materials, analysis, fabrication, characterization, and performance of composite materials, complete with numerous worked examples and exercise problems. The book features new material on such cutting-edge topics as analyzing structures, smart composite structures, and computer software for composite structure analysis.
This Third Edition of the classic text includes greater coverage of composites technology and presents new material on:
