Today, fiber reinforced composites are in use • properties of different component (fiber, in a variety of structures, ranging from space matrix, filler) materials; craft and aircraft to buildings and bridges. • manufacturing techniques; This wide use of composites has been facili • analysis and design; tated by the introduction of new materials, • testing; improvements in manufacturing processes • mechanically fastened and bonded joints; and developments of new analytical and test • repair; ing methods. Unfortunately, information on • damage tolerance; these topics is scattered in journal articles, in • environmental effects; conference and symposium proceedings, in and disposal; • health, safety, reuse, workshop notes, and in government and com • applications in: pany reports. This proliferation of the source – aircraft and spacecraft; material, coupled with the fact that some of – land transportation; the relevant publications are hard to find or – marine environments; are restricted, makes it difficult to identify and – biotechnology; obtain the up-to-date knowledge needed to – construction and infrastructure; utilize composites to their full advantage. – sporting goods. This book intends to overcome these diffi Each chapter, written by a recognized expert, culties by presenting, in a single volume, is self-contained, and contains many of the many of the recent advances in the field of ‘state-of-the-art’ techniques reqUired for prac composite materials. The main focus of this tical applications of composites.
