Book Description

The increasing use of composite materials over conventional materials has been a continual trend for over a decade. While the fundamental understanding of fiber reinforcement has not changed during this time, many new materials advancements have taken place, especially in manufacturing methods, and there is an ever-growing number of composite material applications across a variety of industries. Polymer-Based Composites: Design, Manufacturing, and Applications presents the concepts and methods involved in the development of various fiber-reinforced composite materials.

  • Offers a comprehensive view of materials, mechanics, processing, design, and applications
  • Bridges the gap between research, manufacturing science, and analysis and design
  • Discusses composite materials consisting of continuous synthetic fibers and matrices for use in engineering structures
  • Presents codes and standards related to fiber-reinforced polymer composites
  • Includes case studies and examples based on industrial, automotive, aerospace, and household applications

This book is a valuable resource for advanced students, researchers, and industry personnel to understand recent advances in the field and achieve practical results in the development, manufacture, and application of advanced composite materials.
