Description

Structural Analysis of Polymeric Composite Materials, Second Edition introduces the mechanics of composite materials and structures and combines classical lamination theory with macromechanical failure principles for prediction and optimization of composite structural performance. It addresses topics such as high-strength fibers, manufacturing techniques, commercially available compounds, and the behavior of anisotropic, orthotropic, and transversely isotropic materials and structures subjected to complex loading.





Emphasizing the macromechanical (structural) level over micromechanical issues and analyses, this unique book integrates effects of environment at the outset to establish a coherent and updated knowledge base. In addition, each chapter includes example problems to illustrate the concepts presented.

Table of Contents
