Book description: Understanding damage and failure of
composite materials is critical for reliable and cost-effective
engineering design. Bringing together materials mechanics and modeling,
this book provides a complete guide to damage, fatigue
and failure of composite materials. Early chapters focus on
the underlying principles governing composite damage,
reviewing basic equations and mechanics theory, before
describing mechanisms of damage such as cracking, breakage
and buckling. In subsequent chapters, the physical
mechanisms underlying the formation and progression of
damage under mechanical loads are described with ample
experimental data, and micro- and macro-level damage
models are combined. Finally, fatigue of composite materials
is discussed using fatigue-life diagrams. While there is a
special emphasis on polymer matrix composites, metal and
ceramic matrix composites are also described. Outlining
methods for more reliable design of composite structures,
this is a valuable resource for engineers and materials scientists
in industry and academia.
