The publisher makes no warranty, express or implied, with respect to the material contained herein. All of this activity has led to a substantial addition of new material in this edition. Things are happening at a very fast pace in the field of composites, and there is no question that a lot of very interesting and important work has been done in the past decade or so.
Other editions – View all Composite Materials: The text presents a detailed description of how the various reinforcements such as, glass, polyethylene, aramid, carbonthe materials in which they are embedded ceramics, metals, polymersand of the interfaces between them, control the properties of the composite materials at both the chqwla and macro-levels. The book has been revised and updated throughout, with new chapters on fatigue and creep of composites.
The second edition follows the same format as the first one, namely, a well-balanced treatment of materials and mechanics aspects of composites, cahwla due recognition of the importance of the processing. The industrial activity, in particular, has been led by the large-scale use of composites by xomposite companies, mainly Boeing and Airbus.
