Summary Composite materials have been the most signigicant area of study in structural mechanics, especially aerospace products, during the past thirty-five years. The second edition of this classic reference and text builds on the reputation of the first edition by including more theory-experiment comparisons and a new chapter on the design of composite materials. Fully updated and revised to include easy-to-understand figures, new problem sets, and expanded coverage of posite materials, it offers a balanced approach to the mechanics of composite materials and laminated composite structures.
Subject Composite materials -- Mechanical properties.
Laminated materials -- Mechanical properties.
