VOLUME 1| VOLUME 2| VOLUME 3| VOLUME 4| VOLUME 5 | VOLUME 6 Volume 1: Fiber Reinforcements and General Theory of Composites Summary This volume begins with an introduction in Chapter 1 by the Editors-in -Chief. They provide an outline of the scope and content of the Work as well as a historical perspective of composite materials. The bulk of the Volume is devoted to two basic aspects of composites: reinforcement materials (Chapters 2 -12) and general theories (Chapters 13 -25). The coverage of reinforcement materials focuses mostly on fiber materials, with one chapter reviewing reinforcements in the form of whiskers and particulates. Extensive presentations of the state of fiber technology and their performance are given for carbon fibers (polyacrylonitrile and pitch based), boron fibers, silicon carbide fibers (manufactured by chemical vapor deposition) and organometallic pyrolysis), oxide fibers, aramid fibers, glass fibers, high density polyethylene fibers, polyamide and polyester fibers, and natural organic fibers. The coverage of general theories begins with the morphological characterization, and the thermo-elastic and inelastic behaviors of continuous and discontinuous fiber composites. They form the basis of treatment for lamination theory, and wave propagation in composite plates and shells. These are then followed by detailed reviews of strength analysis, with a particular emphasis on the statistical approach. The Volume ends with a treatment of the fracture and toughening mechanisms, and the mechanics of textile structural composites.

You may browse volumes by using the navigation bar below. VOLUME 1| VOLUME 2| VOLUME 3| VOLUME 4| VOLUME 5 | VOLUME 6 Volume 2: Polymer Matrix Composites Summary This volume deals with properties and manufacturing processes of composites with polymeric matrices. Comprehensive treatment is given to properties of thermosetting resins, thermoplastics and elastomers, and composite systems based on these. Individual chapters are devoted to glass fiber reinforced plastics, carbon fiber reinforced plastics, aramid fiber reinforced plastics, high density polyethelene composites, hybrids and sandwiches, and particulate and short -fiber composites. The mechanisms of deformation and failure that are characteristic of these composite systems are then treated in separate chapters on viscoelasticity and aging, moisture uptake, matrix cracking, delamination and fatigue. Since the properties of composites are closely related to microstructure, an extensive treatment of microstructural characterization is given. Depending on the application and the polymeric matrix, thermoset or thermoplastic, a wide range of manufacturing processes exist. Following an overview of the manufacturing processes, the impregnation and consolidation processes as well as preparation of semifinished products are treated. Individual chapters are devoted to prepregging and autoclaving, and open mold, compression molding, liquid impregnation and continuous molding techniques. The practical aspects of joining, machining and repair of composites are then treated. Finally, a variety of topics of importance to industrial application of composites, such as selection of manufacturing routes and life cycle considerations are discussed.

You may browse volumes by using the navigation bar below. VOLUME 1| VOLUME 2| VOLUME 3| VOLUME 4| VOLUME 5 | VOLUME 6 Volume 5: Test Methods, Nondestructive Evaluation and Smart Composites Summary Volume 5 deals with three distinct topics: Testing of Composite Materials, Nondestructive Evaluation of Composite Materials, and Smart Composites. Each section consists of several chapters that treat contemporary topics in each of these topical areas. These chapters were written by experts in each technical area and each addresses problems associated with the design, testing, inspection, and usage of composite materials. While the preponderance of examples is based on polymer matrix composites, the techniques discussed are applicable to both metal and ceramic matrix materials. These articles represent the state-of -the -art at the end of the 20 th century. Many examples come from research and engineering on military systems, but the applications of composite materials to consumer goods are discussed where possible. To be useful for future readers, each author has provided extensive reference material at the end of each chapter. One particular area that deserves note is the recent incorporation of microelectronic devices into composite structures, giving them electronic functionality. This is of particular significance to the section on smart materials since in situ sensing, processing and activation, will provide new classes of composite materials whose capability is not yet completely visualized.
