The topics, pre- sented in 49 chapters and two appendices include: 0 overview of composite material systems and products; 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 properties of different component (fiber, matrix, filler) materials; manufacturing techniques; analysis and design; testing; mechanically fastened and bonded joints; repair; damage tolerance; environmental effects; health, safety, reuse, and disposal; applications in: aircraft and spacecraft; land transportation; marine environments; biotechnology; construction and infrastructure; sporting goods. Each chapter, written by a recognized expert, is self-contained, and contains many of the 'state-of-the-art' techniques required for prac- tical applications of composites. Thus, this book should serve as a useful source of infor- mation for practicing engineers and spets, as well as for workers new to this field. George S. Springer...
