Principles of Composite Material Mechanics

Principles of Composite Material Mechanics 

Ronald F Gibson

Preference :

Composite materials is truly an interdisciplinary subject, and the number of students taking courses in this area is steadily increasing. Books on the subject tend to emphasize either the mechanics of the materials science aspects of composites. Principles of Composite Material Mechanics are mechanics oriented. Composite materials technology is new enough for many working engineers who have had no training in this area, and so, a textbook in composite material mechanics should be useful not only for the education of new engineers but also for the continuing education of practicing engineers and for reference. The high level of interest in composite materials, the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, the need to reeducate practicing engineers, and the need for a new composite mechanics textbook at the introductory level all led to my decision to write this book.
