Book Description

This book focusses on the theme of repairing polymer composites for critical components used in aerospace industries including the complexities of failure and repair of composites, type of fiber reinforcement and bonding and so forth. It includes special topics on damage assessment using onsite inspection (NDT and THz techniques) and automated repair processes for reliability and repeatability. This book also describes the characterization, modeling and simulation of the composites damage mechanisms with respect to the specific environment and applications. Failures associated with various composite repairing techniques for aerospace applications are also covered.

Key Features:

  • Addresses the composites development process including, damage detection and repair of the composites for aerospace application.                                                                                                                  
  • Covers research on the multi-scale process modelling, material modelling, self-healing, repairing and their analysis                                                                                                                               
  • Concentrates on repair of composites for weight sensitive applications in automobile and aerospace areas                                                                                                                            
  • Analyses materials processing and material design perspective
